Abstract

Introduction: The increase in survival after childhood radiation therapy for some blood malignancies has led to increase in the diagnosis of radiation induced secondary solid malignancies (SSM). Case report: Herein we report a young man presenting with invasive breast cancer 19 years after receiving radiation therapy and bone marrow transplant (BMT) for acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) in childhood. Conclusion: Survivors of radiation treated primary cancer should be closely monitored for breast cancer for the rest of their lives.
