Abstract

This article provides description about acute toxicity and early follow-up of one patient treated for breast cancer and Schnitzler syndrome. There are no previously reported cases exploring this interaction on medical literature.

The expected radiodermitis to occur in the region treated with radiotherapy along with urticarial-like lesions might be challenging in view of the interaction between symptoms and therapeutic measures.
