Synopsis: 
We present an exploratory analysis of perforated diverticular disease in Barbados. There seems to be a relatively high incidence of perforated right-sided diverticulitis in an Afro-Caribbean population. More research is needed to determine the exact etiology of this disease.

INTRODUCTION

Cardiac angiosarcomas are rare tumours which can present with varying clinical symptoms, and are usually difficult to manage. We present a case of a young female who presented with respiratory symptoms, and was found to have a primary cardiac angiosarcoma with metastases. A discussion of primary angiosarcoma and a review of its management follows.
