Primary breast angiosarcomas is rare malignant tumors with poor prognosis. There were two types of presentation: primary angiosarcoma and secondary angiosarcoma. Secondary angiosarcoma occurs after radiation therapy as part of conserving treatment of breast cancer (also associated with chronic lymphedema). We report the case of a 37-year-old woman with primary angiosarcoma. The clinical and radiographic features of breast angiosarcomas are reviewed, and the various treatment options reported in the literature are discussed.
