Diagnostic Considerations

Also consider the following:

  • Telangiectatic metastatic breast disease to the skin
  • Hemangioendotheliomas
  • Hemangiopericytomas
  • Anaplastic Kaposi sarcoma can mimic Stewart-Treves syndrome. [33, 34]
  • Some authors have suggested a distinction between Stewart-Treves syndrome and cutaneous postradiation angiosarcoma. [35]
  • Other lymphedema-related neoplasms [4]
