Angiosarcoma arising in the area of chronically lymphoedematous extremity is referred to as Stewart-Treves syndrome. In the world literature we can find about 400 cases of Stewart-Treves syndrome occurring after treatment for breast cancer. There are also occasional case reports of Stewart-Treves syndrome within chronically lymphoedematous upper extremity not related to breast cancer treatment and within chronically lymphoedematous leg.

MYC immunohistochemistry in angiosarcoma and atypical vascular lesions: practical considerations based on a single institutional experience.

Pathology 2016 Dec 22;48(7):697-704. Epub 2016 Oct 22.

Department of Pathology, University of Michigan Health System, Ann Arbor, MI, United States. Electronic address:

Angiosarcoma (AS) is an uncommon vascular malignancy with an aggressive clinical course. Radiation-associated angiosarcoma (RAAS) and Stewart-Treves syndrome are associated with MYC gene amplification and protein overexpression, while other radiation-associated vascular lesions including atypical vascular lesions (AVL) are not associated with MYC overexpression. In contrast, de novo AS represent a group of molecularly heterogeneous tumours, for which MYC expression has not been extensively examined. Read More

Stewart-Treves syndrome: a case report.

Pan Afr Med J 2014 1;19. Epub 2014 Sep 1.

Department of Surgical Oncology, National Institute of Oncology, Rabat, Morocco.

The Stewart-Treves syndrome was first described in 1948, it's an angiosarcoma developed on a longstanding lymphadenomatous limb, more often after radical mastectomy. 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

Stewart-Treves syndrome.

Radiol Case Rep 2012 7;7(4):693. Epub 2015 Dec 7.

Stewart-Treves syndrome is a rare cutaneous angiosarcoma with a poor prognosis. Physicians must be aware of this lethal syndrome, especially in patients who have been treated for breast cancer with radiation and lymph-node dissection (such as the case reported here). Patients who develop unexplained enlarging plaques of coalescing purple papules should have immediate biopsy for early diagnosis of Stewart-Treves syndrome. Read More
