A case of a thirty-nine year old woman with cerebral cavernous angiomas who developed anaeniia and thrombocytopenia secondary to diffuse liver angiosarcoma is reported. This unique association of liver angiosarcoma and cerebral cavernous angiomas may suggest that this tumour may potentially develop from benign vascular lesions. Hematologic abnormalities in angiosarcomas are moreover reviewed based on recent literature search.
