ABSTRACT
Introduction: Improved survival of patients treated for Hodgkin’s disease has been increased at the cost of late complications, the most frequent of which are secondary neoplasias such as breast cancers, which account for 6–9% of these neoplasias after treatment for MDH. The most favorable factors are mainly young age and radiotherapy.
Case Report: We report the observation of a patient treated for Hodgkin’s disease at the age of 17 years and after 17 years, she was diagnosed with right breast cancer, triple negative and then benefiting from breast-conserving surgery treatment and adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Conclusion: We represent a general review of the risk factors and diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic choices modulated according to the treatment received for the Hodgkin’s disease of these secondary mammary cancers. Survivors of Hodgkin’s disease may have a long life expectancy nowadays and it is important to develop appropriate methods for estimating the risk of late breast cancer.

Keywords: Hodgkin’s disease, Radio induced neoplasms, Radiotherapy, Secondary breast cancer
