INTRODUCTION: Primary pulmonary artery sarcoma (PAS) is a rare malignancy commonly misdiagnosed as chronic pulmonary thromboemboli. Median time from symptom onset to definitive diagnosis and treatment is 3-12 months. Surgery can be curative, but only if diagnosed early. We present a case of PAS diagnosed in a patient with worsening dyspnea on exertion and weight loss.
