Summaries for Lymphangiosarcoma

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Stewart Treves syndrome is a rare angiosarcoma that develops in people with long-standing lymphedema. Most affected people have a history of breast cancer that was treated with a radical mastectomy. Early signs of the condition vary and may include purplish patches that develop into skin nodules, a mass under the skin, or a poorly healing eschar with recurrent bleeding and oozing. The exact underlying cause of the condition is poorly understood. Although Stewart Treves syndrome is always associated with long-standing lymphedema, other unknown factors also appear to contribute to the development of the condition. Early diagnosis and aggressive surgical treatment may improve the long-term outlook of the condition. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and immunotherapy continue to be studied as possible treatment options and may be recommended in some cases.

MalaCards based summary : Lymphangiosarcoma, also known as stewart treves syndrome, is related to lymphedema and hereditary lymphedema. An important gene associated with Lymphangiosarcoma is PROX1 (Prospero Homeobox 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and MAPK signaling pathway. The drugs Paclitaxel and Albumin-Bound Paclitaxel have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include lymphatic vessels, skin and endothelial, and related phenotypes are cardiovascular system and cellular

Disease Ontology : 12 A lymphatic system cancer that has material basis in endothelial cells located in lymphatic vessels.
