On physical examination, the patient showed no associated cubital or axillar
The patient underwent RT treatment in the supine position with an axillar
wedge to ensure a reproducible positioning using a linear accelerator and 15 and 6 MV photons.

Although patients included in this trial were highly selected in terms of standardized treatments as breast-conserving surgery with axillar
dissection, appropriate systemic treatments the number of the planned patients could not be reached.
The sites for folder measurement were chest, tricipital, subscapular, axillar
, supra-iliac, femoral, and abdominal.
For upper limb, a similar procedure was performed with supraclavicular or axillar
approaches for nerve blockade.
Due to the discrepancy between these results and the clinical data indicating a Stewart-Treves syndrome (based on the radical mastectomy, axillar
resection and lymphedema developed during several years), the investigation was complemented with antiD2-40 and anti-VEGFR-3 (Flt-4) antibodies, in order to differentiate the vascular origin from the lymphatic one.
After 3 weeks, the patient experienced fatigue and detected multiple 1-2 cm non-tender cervical and axillar
lymph nodes in the physical examination.
In the children, a size of 2 cm in the neck, 1 cm in the axillar
region and 1,5 cm in the inguinal region were considered normal and sizes above these values were considered lymphadenomegaly.
