ABSTRACT
With this review, we aimed to describe the role of adjuvant radiotherapy in the therapeutic management of metastatic inflammatory breast cancer, a rare and aggressive disease historically characterized by high rates of recurrence and poor prognosis. In the context of a multimodality approach, Post-Mastectomy Radiotherapy (PMRT) affirms its role as an appriopriate treatment strategy to improve loco-regional tumor control in selected patients. Further validation in prospective trials is required to better define a standardized therapeutic management of this disease.
