Secondary breast angiosarcoma: A multicentre retrospective survey by the national Italian association of Breast Surgeons (ANISC).

Breast 2019 Mar 7;45:56-60. Epub 2019 Mar 7.

IEO, Milano, Italy.

Background: Breast angiosarcoma is a malignant mesenchymal neoplasm, which accounts for approximately 2% of all soft tissue sarcomas. Secondary breast angiosarcoma (SBA) may be related to chronic lymphedema after a mastectomy with lymph node dissection (Stewart Treves syndrome) and previous radiotherapy for complications from breast radiation treatment. It is a very rare condition; therefore, diagnosis and management are still a challenge. Read More

Acquired Lymphangiectasia of the Breast After Breast Conserving Surgery.

Indian J Surg 2015 Dec 25;77(Suppl 3):1421-2. Epub 2015 Jan 25.

Department of General Surgery, Turgut Özal University, Ankara, Turkey.

Lymphangiectasia is characterized by vesicular dilation of lymphatic vessels and is generally a complication of radiotherapy or surgery of various malignant tumors such as breast and cervical cancers. Although it is not a precancerous disease, correct diagnosis is important to rule out Stewart-Treves syndrome which is defined as lymphangiosarcoma that develops in long-standing chronic postmastectomy lymphedema. Observation alone or many therapeutic options including cryosurgery, electrocauterization, sclerotherapy, and excision have been widely used in the management. Read More

Universidade Federal do Pará, Belém, PA, BR.

Stewart-Treves syndrome is a rare cutaneous angiosarcoma that develops in long-standing chronic lymphedema. Though most commonly this angiosarcoma is a result of post mastectomy lymphoedema, it also develops in Milroy disease, idiopathic, congenital, traumatic and filarial lymphoedema. Despite the rarity of this syndrome and its poor prognosis, early diagnosis associated with radical surgery can provide improved survival. 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

Post-mastectomy benign lymphangioendothelioma of the skin following chronic lymphedema for breast carcinoma: a teaching case mimicking low-grade angiosarcoma and masquerading as Stewart-Treves syndrome.

Diagn Pathol 2014 Oct 29;9:197. Epub 2014 Oct 29.

Departments of Pathology and Cell Biology, School of Medicine, University of Occupational and Environmental Health, 1-1 Iseigaoka, Yahatanishi-ku, Kitakyushu 807-8555, Japan.

Benign lymphangioendothelioma (BL) represents a very rare lymphatic vascular proliferation. Our aim is to be aware that owing to its characteristic features, pathologists can easily misinterpret it as cutaneous low-grade angiosarcoma when examining only small specimens. In the present case, multiple small and yellowish to reddish soft nodules were noticed in the edematous left arm of a 54-year-old Japanese female 4 years after the radical mastectomy with axillary lymph nodes dissection and following radiotherapy to the chest for the left breast carcinoma.

Lymphedema-related angiogenic tumors and other malignancies.

Clin Dermatol 2014 Sep-Oct;32(5):616-20

Department of Dermatology, Rutgers University - New Jersey Medical School, 185 South Orange Avenue, Newark, New Jersey, 07103. Electronic address:

Chronic lymphedema has a permissive effect with certain types of malignancies, particularly angiosarcomas, in what is known as Stewart-Treves syndrome. The presumed mechanism of this effect is an immunocompromised district of the affected area. Most other cutaneous malignancies have also been described in lymphedematous areas, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma, Kaposi sarcoma, Merkel cell carcinoma, and several cutaneous lymphomas.

The immunocompromised district in dermatology: A unifying pathogenic view of the regional immune dysregulation.

Clin Dermatol 2014 Sep-Oct;32(5):569-76

Dermatology Unit, Kaplan Medical Center, Rehovot, Israel. Affiliated to The School of Medicine, Hebrew University and Hadassah, Jerusalem.

Besides the systemic immune deficiency, a sectorial default in immune control may occur in immunocompetent subjects. This regional immune defect can appear and remain confined to differently damaged skin areas, lately labeled immunocompromised districts (ICDs). An ICD is a skin area more vulnerable than the rest of the body for genetic or acquired reasons. Read More

Angiosarcomas are malignant tumors, which originate from the vessel endothelium and resemble the vessel structure. Stewart-Treves syndrome is an angiosarcoma which in general, develops in female patients after mastectomy and axillary lymph node dissection and is associated with chronic lymphedema. The prognosis of this rare complication is very poor. Read More

Distant metastases in a young woman with Stewart-Treves syndrome demonstrated by an FDG-PET/CT scan.

Clin Nucl Med 2014 Nov;39(11):975-6

From the *Department of Nuclear Medicine and PET Center, China Medical University Hospital, Taichung, Taiwan; †Department of Biomedical Imaging and Radiological Science, China Medical University, Taichung, Taiwan; and ‡School of Medicine, China Medical University, Taichung, Taiwan.

This 17-year-old woman had chronic congenital lymphedema in the left lower extremity since childhood. She underwent surgeries to remove excessive lymphedematous tissues more than 15 times previously. Histopathology of the specimen from the recent surgery revealed angiosarcoma; therefore, FDG-PET/CT scan was arranged to determine the extent of tumor spread, and distant metastases were discovered.

Cutaneous epithelioid clear cells angiosarcoma in a young woman with congenital lymphedema.

Case Rep Pathol 2013 3;2013:931973. Epub 2013 Sep 3.

Department of Pathology, Tours University Hospital, 37044 Tours, France.

Angiosarcomas are rare aggressive neoplasms that can occur secondary to chronic lymphedema (Stewart-Treves syndrome). Although secondary angiosarcomas are commonly described after-mastectomy and/or after-radiotherapy, few cases have been reported in association with chronic lymphedema of congenital origin. We report the clinical, pathological, and cytogenetic findings in a case of cutaneous epithelioid clear cells angiosarcoma that occurred in a 21-year-old woman with hemibody congenital lymphedema.
