Diagnosis is made on skin biopsy and the prognosis is poor when radical surgery can't be performed. We report the case on a Stewart-Treves syndrome in a sixty-six years old woman who underwent radical mastectomy for breast carcinoma ten years earlier. Read More

We report a case of a Stewart-Treves syndrome of the lower limb. The tumor is best described in the upper limb following breast cancer treatment but a small number of cases have arisen in lymphedema of the lower limb. Electrochemotherapy could be useful in the palliative treatment of this lymphangiosarcoma. Read More
