ABSTRACT

Introduction: Breast angiosarcomas are rare but aggressive malignant endothelial cell tumors. There are two entities: primary angiosarcoma and secondary angiosarcoma to breast irradiation. This neoplasia is characterized by absence of typical features at radiological examination.
Case Report: We report a case of a 40-year-old female with a history of invasive ductal breast carcinoma presented with a bilateral breast angiosarcoma. The main treatment is a large surgery with free tumor margins. The role of adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy is still a subject of debate. For inoperable and metastatic disease, chemotherapy is the pillar of treatment.
Conclusion: The prognosis of breast angiosarcoma is still poor. Many prospective trials are needed to establish more clear therapeutic strategies.

Keywords: Breast angiosarcoma, Chemotherapy, Post-irradiation, Radiotherapy, Surgery
