Background:

Mammary angiosarcoma (AS) is a rare entity, accounting for about 0.04% of all primary breast malignancies [1]. It occurs after mastectomy or radiotherapy. It rarely occurs de novo. We analyze the clinicopathological features and the treatment of primary (AS). We analyzed breast angiosarcoma cases diagnosed in the pathology department of Salah Azaïez Institute between 1995 and 2011. Five cases were identified as primary AS involving the breast. No patients had a history of mastectomy or breast irradiation. The ages ranged from 16 to 97 years. The physical examination revealed erythematous, bruised-appearing skin in one patient and skin thickening with palpable mass in 4 cases.
