Abstract: Breast cancer (BC) is the principal cause of cancer-related death in women. Metastatic patients are usually treated with a systemic therapy, but clinical results are limited. Oligometastatic subjects can benefit from high-precision radiotherapy techniques to potentially achieve a complete response. Currently, there is limited evidence of stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) treatments in elderly oligometastatic cancer patients. A review of the medical literature was performed in PubMed database to assess the current role of SABR in the treatment of breast oligometastases in elderly patients. SABR represents a feasible and safe therapeutic approach in oligometastatic elderly BC patients. Further studies are required to establish the optimum patient selection and treatment scheme.
