Abstract

A case is described of angiosarcoma in the irradiated area in a 71 year old patient treated with breast conserving therapy 16 years ago for cancer of the left breast. These rare tumours of soft tissues account for about 1–2% of alltypes of sarcomas. In the irradiated area breast cancer occurs less often and is found only in 0.4% of patients. Ananalysis of the course of the disease, and review of literature with regard to methods of treatment and prognostic factors were carried out.
