Angiosarcoma of the head and neck, a rare malignancy, is associated with a high degree of invasiveness and poor survival. A high level of suspicion followed by histopathologic and immunohistochemical studies is warranted in order to arrive at a well-timed and accurate diagnosis. We report the case of a 56-year-old man who developed an unusually small neoplasm in the nasal columella. Rapid diagnosis allowed for simple treatment with surgical excision, a rare circumstance because most of these tumors require extensive surgery. Close long-term follow-up of patients with angiosarcoma of the head and neck is vitally important.
