Abstract

In Tanzania, Tuberculosis is among the most common and important diagnoses in a patient presenting with constitutional symptoms and lung opacities on plain radiography. We report a 32-year-old male who was misdiagnosed as extrapulmonary tuberculosis based on symptoms and imaging. Further workup revealed a rare but aggressive metastatic angiosarcoma.
