Abstract

This paper presents a rare case of a primary gigantic tumour of the right arm in a fifty-seven-year old man. The measurements of the arm tumour were as follows: length - 490 mm, width - 340 mm, circumference - 1080 mm, weight - 7350 grams, while the period of its development was about 20 years. The patient was admitted to hospital as an emergency case suffering from bleeding of superficial tumour vessels and secondary anaemia. The patient was operated on in a planned course of action. During and after the operation no complications were observed while secondary anaemia syndromes receded.
