Intimal sarcomas of the Pulmonary Artery (PAS) are uncommon and highly lethal tumors. Due to their nonspecific symptoms, are often misdiagnosed with a poor prognosis due to its extreme aggressiveness. In this report, we present a case of PAS in a patient with a history of surgically treated Lynch Syndrome. Clinical and morphological findings are presented.
