Although sarcomas are occasional after irradiation, there are angiosarcomas developed after radiotherapy for different type malign tumors. In this study we evaluated the imaging methods performed for diagnosis of a giant angiosarcoma developed at right anterior hemithorax upper quadrant, in late period after radiotherapy in a 30 years old patient irradiated 13 years before for Hodgkin disease and in whom we totally extirpated the angiosarcoma surgically.
