Angiosarcoma of the breast is rare and has a poor prognosis due to its aggressive nature. This is a report of two patients with mammary angiosarcomas, each with different clinical presentations, and at either end of the age spectrum. One is an 18-year-old woman who presented with a rapidly enlarging breast mass, and the other a 72-year-old woman whose breast mass was found during screening mammography. The radiological features of mammary angiosarcoma are summarised in this report.
Key words: Breast neoplasms; Hemangiosarcoma; Neoplasm metastasis
