Angiosarcomas are malignant mesenchymal tumours that develop from the endothelium of a blood vessel.
It is an uncommon cancer that occurs among men and women, more often among older adults and usually in
the skin, soft tissue, breast, or liver. Angiosarcoma is a rare but well recognised complication after radiation
therapy. Most post radiation angiosarcomas are seen in the breast and very few cases of angiosarcoma have
been reported following radiotherapy for cervical cancer.
We report one such case of post radiation angiosarcoma which developed years after radiation therapy for
carcinoma cervix.
