Author information

  • 1Department of Surgery and Histopathology, St Charles' Hospital, London, U.K.


Angiosarcoma of the breast is an uncommon neoplasm but coincident angiosarcoma with infiltrating ductal carcinoma is not yet reported. This paper describes a case of angiosarcoma which developed after 4 years of a wide excision and adjuvant radiotherapy for a ductal carcinoma of the breast. Due to latent period of only 4 years radiotherapy cannot be blamed as an aetiological factor in this case but neither is it possible to exclude it as a causative factor.
