Lymphangiosarcoma, or Stewart-Treves Syndrome (STS), is a very rare skin angiosarcoma with poor prognosis, which usually affects the upper limbs of patients who underwent breast cancer surgery, including axillary dissection followed by radiotherapy (RT). Cutaneous lymphangiosarcomas, which account for approximately 5% of all angiosarcomas, usually originate in the limb with chronic lymphedema. Lymphatic blockade is involved in the onset of STS.

IL-23 Expression in Stewart-Treves Syndrome: Two Case Reports and Immunohistochemical Investigation.

Case Rep Oncol 2020 Jan-Apr;13(1):462-467. Epub 2020 Apr 30.

Department of Dermatology, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Sendai, Japan.

Stewart-Treves syndrome (STS) is a rare cutaneous lymphangiosarcoma developing from chronic lymph edema as a consequence of radical mastectomy or surgical invasion of the groin for the treatment of cervical or penile cancer. Previous reports suggested possible mechanisms in the development of lymphangiosarcoma that correlate with the immunological background of STS patients. In this report, we described two cases of STS developing in patients who underwent radical dissection for cervical cancer, we employed immunohistochemical staining of IL-23 and IL-17. Read More

Department of Tumor Orthopedics and Sarcoma Surgery, University Hospital Essen, University Essen-Duisburg, Germany.

Secondary Angiosarcoma (Stewart-Treves Syndrome) is a rare malignant cutaneous lesion, which arises in chronic lymphedema of the extremity, often observed after breast cancer treatment. We reviewed the history and the oncological outcome of two patients with this disease. Multimodal therapy including hyperthermic isolated limb perfusion with TNF-alpha and Melphalan, combined with radical resection of the affected skin and subcutaneous tissue including the fascia, with large safety margins may probably lead to better survival.

It is a very rare condition; therefore, diagnosis and management are still a challenge. Read More
