PMID:  2257515     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Malignant pleural mesothelioma is a rare and usually fatal disease. Its association with asbestosis is well recognized. The authors report a case of malignant pleural mesothelioma that developed 30 years after the patient underwent radiotherapy for breast cancer. This appears to be the first such case reported in the radiology literature.
