“…Our search of the English language literature found 67 patients with ALV reported as of June 2014, and the mean age of affected patients was 50 years. Overall, 41 patients (61%) had a history of malignancy,,,,,,,,,,, 27 of whom had cervical cancer ,,,,,,,,,,,,. Other malignancies represented included endometrial cancer ( n = 3), breast cancer ( n = 3), Hodgkin lymphoma ( n = 3), vulvar cancer ( n = 2), rhabdomyosarcoma ( n = 2), and melanoma ( n = 1) .…”

“…Atypical vascular proliferations, which have been described under various nomenclature designations, occur in areas of prior radiation, are often seen in association with angiosarcoma, and in some cases may be difficult to distinguish from vasoformative angiosarcoma. 22,23,[30][31][32][33][34][35][36][37][38][39][40] MYC proto-oncogene is a transcription factor located on the long arm of chromosome 8 (8q24.21) and is implicated in cellular proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. 41 Nuclear expression of MYC occurs in the vast majority of secondary angiosarcomas (Figure 2), but it is only very rarely seen in primary angiosarcoma, and it is not detected in atypical or benign vascular lesions occurring in irradiated skin.…”
