Abstract: Aortic sarcomas have not been linked to Lynch syndrome in humans, although other soft tissue malignancies have been. We report the case of a 31-year-old man with Lynch syndrome, who presented with abdominal pain and severe claudication. The clinical and diagnostic workup revealed near occlusion of the infrarenal aorta due to aortic angiosarcoma. En bloc resection of the visceral and infrarenal aorta with right nephrectomy was performed, facilitated by temporary extracorporeal bypass to the visceral arteries. The aorta was reconstructed with a bifurcated Dacron graft. At the 24-month follow-up examination, the patient was free of disease but was experiencing chronic diarrhea.
