Case presentation : A 51 years old woman underwent righy mastectomy in may 2008. She performed fi rst- line chemotherapy with doxorubicin every 21 days. The CT revaluation after ten cycle showed a partial response to treatment.

After two months of this maintenance treatment, the CT scan showed a complete response. The metronomic treatment is still ongoing, and after 45 months the patient maintains a complete response.
