This is the case of a patient with metastatic disease diagnosed 40 years after a radical mastectomy which was followed by radiation treatment for breast cancer. The patient had nonspecific symptoms for 3 years, and a lymph node biopsy revealed the underlying cause to be recurrent breast cancer. Excision of the largest metastases combined with chemotherapy resulted in a further 3-year remission.
