    We report a case of angiosarcoma of the glans penis in a 77 year old male Caucasian. The tumour developed 18 years after a course of radiotherapy for a penile ulcer which was an intra-epidermal squamous carcinoma. The differential diagnosis and the concept of radiotherapy-induced angiosarcomas are discussed.
