Iatrogenic angiosarcomas (AS), following treatment of breast carcinomas and attributed to chronic lymphedema, were first described by Stewart and Treves. With emphasis on breast-conserving therapy combined with adjuvant radiation, a recently recognized form of cutaneous postradiation angiosarcoma of the breast (CPRASB) has emerged. To more completely characterize CPRASB, 27 cases were analyzed. Histologic features studied included pattern of growth (vasoformative, sieve-like, or solid), nuclear grade, necrosis, and mitotic rate. Clinical and follow-up information was obtained. The patients received relatively standard radiation treatment. The median interval to diagnosis of CPRASB was 59 months; 5 occurred in less than 3 years. Lymphedema was largely absent, and when present was only mild in nature. CPRASB was frequently multifocal at presentation (13 of 27). All tumors had a vasoformative pattern of growth; the majority (16 of 27) had areas with a sieve-like pattern. The solid pattern was less frequent (7 of 27). The majority had high-grade nuclear features (16 grade 3, 8 grade 2, 3 grade1). The mean mitotic rate was 9/10 HPF. Necrosis was rare (2 of 27). All were treated with wide excision or mastectomy. Follow-up was available on 22 of 27 cases (median 44 months). Fourteen experienced local recurrence and 6 had multiple recurrences. Metastasis was documented in 9 of 22 patients and involved lungs (6), contralateral breast (3), skeleton (2), lymph nodes (1), and soft tissue (1). Eight patients died of disease, 2 died with disease, 4 were alive with disease, and 8 are alive without disease. The median interval to death was 33.5 months. All 4 patients with disease have documented metastasis. CPRASB differs from Stewart-Treves AS by its shorter latency period and lack of association with lymphedema.
