A rare, primary tumor of the pulmonary artery in a 64 yr old woman is reported. The disease was manifest clinically 13 mth before massive cerebral metastases caused death. Metastases were also present in the lung, thyroid, pancreas and kidney. Microscopically, the neoplasm was a peculiar sarcoma with a remarkable propensity for intravascular growth. The name of 'primary intimal sarcoma' is proposed for the present case and for tumors which have previously been reported to have these distinctive features.
