Abstract

Radiotherapy is an adjuvant treatment for thoracic cancers which exposes to an increased risk of cardiovascular toxicity, in particular severe valvular, years after exposure. The identification of early symptoms as well as regular ultrasound follow-up remains essential to watch for cardiotoxicity early. We report the case of a patient followed for adenocarcinoma of the left breast treated with radiotherapy and complicated 10 years later by a predominantly stenosing aortic.disease.
