Cutaneous angiosarcoma is a rare vascular tumour especially of elderly males. We present a rare case of elderly female who presented with scalp lesion, parotid swelling and posed a diagnostic challenge. Further work up including biopsy of the lesion revealed the diagnosis of cutaneous angiosarcoma. Rarity of the case due to presence of this rare tumour in a darkcolored female and wide spread presentation of the tumour prompted us to report the case. This case adds to the literature of few cases describing this rare tumour in Indian subcontinent. It attempts to alert the clinicians of this entity, as early diagnosis of the tumour may possibly improve the already known dismal prognosis!
