Abstract

Angiosarcomas are rare tumors arising from endothelial lining of vascular channels. The first case of breast
angiosarcoma was presented in 1907 by Borrman and the first case of secondary angiosarcoma described
in 1987 by Body. There are 2 main types. Haemangiosarcomas in blood vessels and lymphangiosarcomas
in lymphatic vessel walls.
All angiosarcomas tend to be aggressive and are mostly multicentric. These tumors have very high local
recurrence rate and metastasis because of their intrinsic biologic properties. They are often misdiagnosed
leading to a poor prognosis and a high mortality rate. We present a case of a 21-year-old female presented
with an ulcerated right breast lesion which was diagnosed as primary angiosarcoma of breast with
metastasis to left breast after 4 years.

Keywords: Angiosarcoma, Breast, Sarcoma.
