Primary angiosarcoma is a rare clinical entity, it’s typically located within the right atrium and known to be rapidly fatal. A 37-year-old female was presented with a history of recurrent facial paralysis and left hemiparesis. A cranial mass was identified at cranial magnetic resonance imaging and she underwent neurosurgery operation. The immunohistochemical examination was determined as metastatic cardiac angiosarcoma. The tumor, as well as part of the right pericardium, were resected. A piece of bovine pericardium was used to reconstruct the right atrial wall. Tricuspid valve was reconstructed with ring annuloplasty. Due to resection of right coronary artery with the tumor, coronary bypass surgery was performed successfully. The patient is currently healthful without any recurrence and complaint 12 months after the diagnosis as followed up.
