Summary: Sarcomas of the major arteries are rare tumors often misdiagnosed due to nonspecific symptomatology. The authors present three cases of pulmonary artery and aortic sarcomas that were initially believed to be more common diseases. Modern imaging techniques including helical computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are increasing the frequency of premortem diagnosis of these entities and aided surgical planning.
