Abstract

We review a case of inoperable early stage breast cancer treated definitively with the use of stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR). A 57-year-old female with a history of decompensated cirrhosis with early stage breast cancer was treated with 25 Gy in one fraction. At her 7-month follow up visit, there was a complete resolution of disease on imaging. This case represents a novel approach for the treatment of breast cancer with SABR when surgery is contraindicated.
