Abstract

This is a case report of a 57-year-old man who had primary angiosarcoma of the left breast. Five months after detecting a mass in his breast, he underwent mastectomy with biopsy of the ipsilateral axillary lymph nodes. Three years later, he is still alive without any recurrence. Angiosarcoma of the female breast is rare and exceptional in males. It is a condition with a poor prognosis and there are as yet no established chemotherapeutic regimens.
