TORRES GOMEZ, F. J.; IBANEZ MARTINEZ, J.  and  TORRES OLIVERA, F. J.. Breast angiosarcoma: A case report. Oncología (Barc.) [online]. 2006, vol.29, n.2, pp.43-47. ISSN 0378-4835.

Angiosarcoma of the breast is a rare neoplasm but one of the most common sarcomas in this location, frequently associated with thoracic radiotherapy. Clinical data and imaging techniques may help the diagnosis, but histological and immunohistochemical studies become necessary in most cases. The prognosis depends on the histological grade, neoplasms of high grade having a worse prognosis. We report the case of a slow growth and variegate histological grade breast angiosarcoma having no relationship with radiotherapy.
