Radiation-Induced Angiosarcoma

Radiation-Induced Angiosarcoma




A 48-year-old woman was referred to our clinic with painless bluish-brown lesions on her left forearm that developed over a period of 4-5 months at the site of previous irradiation. She was approximately 3 years old when radiotherapy was performed for hemangiomas on her left forearm and the right gluteal area. Thereafter, the hemangiomas completely disappeared leaving signs of local radiation dermatitis. A recurrence of hemangioma or angiosarcoma was suspected clinically.

Although she suffered from postoperative hypothyroidism, uterine myoma and ovarian cysts, she was otherwise in a good health and her family history was unremarkable.
