  • 1Service de Chirurgie Oncologique, Centre Hospitalier Lyon-Sud, Pierre Benite Cedex, France.


Radio-induced angiosarcoma of the breast after conservative therapy for invasive adenocarcinoma is a very rare tumour. Between 1996 and 2000, four cases were operated in our Department of Surgical Oncology. After a review of the literature over the same period of time, natural history and treatment of radio-induced angiosarcomas of the breast were analysed.
