A 64-year-old woman was admitted for weakness and coldness in her right upper arm. She had undergone a right mastectomy for breast carcinoma 32 years before presentation and radiotherapy for clavicular metastasis of breast cancer 3 years before presentation. After thorough investigation, post-radiotherapy axillary artery occlusion was diagnosed. She underwent right external carotid―brachial artery bypass and was discharged without postoperative cerebral complications. Herein, we describe treatment for post-radiotherapy axillary artery occlusion.
