Background Recurrent radiation-induced osteosarcoma of the sternum following remote radiation therapy for breast cancer and sternal reconstruction. Case A 51-year-old woman presents with recurrent, radiation-induced sternal osteosarcoma 11 years after receiving both radiation therapy for breast cancer and sternal reconstruction. The case details both her work-up and subsequent course, including reconstructive and curative efforts. Discussion An uncommon side effect of radiation therapy for breast cancer is development of osteosarcoma of the chest wall. Even rarer is recurrence of the osteosarcoma following sternal reconstruction.
