BP induced by RT was observed predominantly in patients with breast cancer. In all reported cases, there is a clear relationship with RT. Therefore, BP may be considered as RT-induced side effect. RT can induce a BP following a minimal dose of 20 Gy. New biological agents may play a role in the future treatment of BP.
