    Abstract

    We report a case of angiosarcoma of the vagina in a 61-year-old woman who had undergone radical hysterectomy and pelvic irradiation for uterine cervical adenocarcinoma 14 years previously. Combination chemotherapy (cyclophosphamide, vincristine, doxorubicin and dacarbazine) and interleukin-2 induced complete remission of the tumor. The patient remained free from disease for 15 months.
