Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Rzeszowskiego
Introduction. Angiosarcoma is a rare breast cancer that can be primary or secondary after surgery or after breast cancer radiotherapy. It is important that breast angiosarcoma belongs to tumors with a non-specific clinical and radiological picture. Aim. The study of the biopsies contained aggressive vasomotor hyperplasia. Description of the case. The presented case concerns the primary angiosarcoma of the right breast in a 56-year-old woman who had never had a surgical procedure before, nor radiotherapy in the area of the breast. Conclusion. Histopathological examination supported by immunohistochemistry is a reliable and indispensable diagnostic element in the diagnosis of vascular sarcoma.
