Primary cardiac tumors are rare with angiosarcoma being the most common among malignant cardiac tumor. We present a case of 30-year-old female patient in whom F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography demonstrated a necrotic mass in right atrium with multiple fluorodeoxyglucose avid lesions in both upper and lower alveolus, liver, multiple bones, and bilateral lungs. Patient underwent biopsy from gum swelling which revealed metastatic angiosarcoma.
