Angiosarcoma of the breast mimicking radiation dermatitis arising after lumpectomy and breast irradiation: a case report.

Author information

Department of Radiation Oncology, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pennsylvania 15213, USA.


Angiosarcoma arising in the breast is a very rare malignancy. Of the small number of reported cases, most arose in the breast after breast irradiation. A case is reported of angiosarcoma arising in the breast more than 7 years after lumpectomy and breast irradiation for carcinoma of the breast. The initial appearance was very similar to the changes of late radiation dermatitis and the true nature of the malignant lesion was not known for 23 months.
