Pericardium and epicardium tissue slides revealed predominantly solid sheets of high-grade epithelioid to spindle cells with focal areas of vasoformation. Tumor cells predominantly epithelioid show prominent atypia with abundant amophilic to eosinophilic cytoplasm, large vesicular nucleoli, and prominent nucleoli with atypical mitotic figures.
In grade-1 angiosarcoma, the vasoformation is obvious and the endothelial cells show minimal atypia.
In areas of malignant vasoformation, cellular stratification may create a papillary appearance.
