Abstract

Development of Myofibrosarcoma after Removal of Longstanding Chemotherapy Port

We present a case report of a patient who developed a myofibrosarcoma after removal of a left-sided chemotherapy port which was place ten years prior for the treatment of a right sided-breast cancer. The patient developed a new left-sided breast cancer and after surgical resection of the left breast cancer, she presented with a rapidly growing mass; a high grade sarcoma was diagnosed after definitive resection. We also review the literature in foreign body- associated sarcomagenesis.
