The management of pediatric abdominopelvic angiosarcoma remains unclear due to limited clinical experience. Herein, we presented the first 2 pediatric patients with abdominal angiosarcoma who were treated with cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) after neoadjuvant therapy. The first patient is alive with recurrent disease at 1-year follow-up and the second patient remains disease free after 1 year. CRS and HIPEC should be considered as a therapeutic option in the management of pediatric abdominal angiosarcomas. A multi-institutional international shared registry is needed to further evaluate the role of CRS and HIPEC in inducing remission of abdominopelvic angiosarcomas in the pediatric population.
