          Abstract

          Ionising radiation is often used as an adjuvant in the management of breast cancer. Acute and chronic skin changes are well recognised complications associated with its use. We demonstrate a rare clinical presentation of cutaneous mastocytosis that occurred at the site of radiotherapy and then extended beyond this boundary, and ask whether this can be treated as a localised side effect of radiotherapy or whether the potential for systemic mastocytosis needs to be excluded.
