A case of hepatic angiosarcoma diagnosed by fine needle aspiration biopsy is documented for its rarity. Angiosarcoma (AS) of liver constitutes only 2% of primary liver tumours. Since it presents either as an extensive lesion or as a solitary mass, the chances of getting a good cell yield for cytologic diagnosis are very high. Fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is a specific and sensitive technique for diagnosing hepatic malignancies and is a safe procedure especially if conducted under ultrasonographic guidance.
