In this study, we evaluated the clinical presentation of patients with skin recurrence in breast cancer patients. We treated 1, 228 cases of breast cancer patients during 2004 to 2010. The skin recurrences were recognized in 11 patients. The duration of showing skin recurrence was 1 .8 years. The muscle preserving radical mastectomy was performed in all cases. And surgical margins of all cases were negative. All cases were not performed radiation therapy. Nine cases were received chemotherapy as adjuvant therapy. Seven cases received endocrine therapy. After recurrence, they were treated by multi- disciplinary therapy. The surgical resection was useful to judge the effect of other therapies. The observation period was 2. 2 years. Two patients died, but 8 other patients are still alive.
