The Annual San Antonio Symposium was held on 5-9, December, 2017 in San Antonio, Texas, USA (1). As expected, many new studies were presented for the first time at the sessions. The unofficial opening lecture in my point of view was given on locoregional recurrence by Monica Morrow from MSKCC, New York. As always, Morrow's lecture on "Challenges in the surgical management of locoregional recurrence" attracted great interest. The other prominent conferences were given on "Individualizing Management of the Axillary Nodes" by Tari A. King from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and on "Appropriate margins for breast conserving surgery in patients with early stage breast cancer: A meta-analysis" by Shah C from Cleveland Clinic.
