Juvenile papillomatosis of the breast represents a rare benign proliferative disorder that affects women younger than thirty years of age. Although it is a localized lesion, it does not have well-demarcated margins. These patients tend to have a strong family history for cancer. As it has similar clinical presentation with that of a fibroadenoma, it usually receives the diagnosis of the latter in the preoperative period. Nonetheless, it has distinct microscopic features such as ductal papillomatosis and cysts that are helpful in the diagnosis...

REVIEW
Ian S Fentiman
This review examines the symptoms, need for referral and management of the benign breast conditions which afflict males, together with the steps that are necessary to exclude or confirm male breast cancer. The most common complaint is gynaecomastia, either true or pseudo, and the majority of these cases need reassurance without over-investigation. Drugs that induce breast enlargement are described in order that, when possible, a medication switch can be made. Men receiving endocrine therapy for prostate cancer may develop painful gynaecomastia and this can be relieved with tamoxifen...

BACKGROUND: Over 40% of women undergoing breast screening have mammographically dense breasts. Elevated mammographic breast density (MBD) is an established breast cancer risk factor and is known to mask tumors within the dense tissue. However, the association of MBD with high risk benign breast disease (BBD) is unknown. METHOD: We analyzed data for 3400 women diagnosed with pathologically confirmed BBD in the Mayo Clinic BBD cohort from 1985-2001, with a clinical MBD measure (either parenchymal pattern (PP) or Breast Imaging Reporting and Data Systems (BI-RADS) density) and expert pathology review...

Large childhood body size has been consistently shown to be associated with decreased breast cancer risk. However, it is important to consider the effects of a large childhood body size on other adult diseases. It is not clear if the associations between childhood body size and adult diseases will persist if they later attain healthy weight. The associations between body size at age 7 and 17 adverse outcomes in adulthood were examined using Cox models in a Swedish study of 65,057 women. Large body size at age 7, when compared to small body size, was associated with decreased risk for breast cancer (HR [95% CI]: 0...

Piyush Joshi, Rohit Sharma
Introduction: Screening mammography is used for detection of breast cancer and is interpreted using the Breast Image Reporting and Data System (BIRADS) convention. It is not routinely offered to women in countries which do not have a national screening programme resulting in a challenge for the radiologist who has to interpret these in the absence of previous mammograms. Aim: To analyse benign and probably benign lesions in screening mammograms in a hitherto unscreened population and suggest protocols to increase diagnostic confidence...

INTRODUCTION: Metaplastic carcinoma of the breast includes a heterogeneous group of neoplasms characterized by admixture of adenocarcinoma with area of squamous, chondroid and osseous differentiation. If the tumor shows pure squamous differentiation, it is designated as squamous carcinoma. SCCB accounts for less than 1% of all invasive breast carcinoma. It can present as cystic lesions and simulate a breast abscess. CASE REPORT: A 75-year old woman was visited at our General Surgery Unit for a palpable lump, about 5 cm in size, at the lower inner quadrant of right breast...

BACKGROUND: Autologous fat transplantation is used after breast reconstruction to improve the breast profile. There are a variety of different methods used for fat harvesting, preparation, and reinjection. This study describes the specific techniques we used in this series of autologous fat transplantations in breast reconstruction patients and reports their outcomes compared with other studies in the literature. PATIENTS AND METHODS: At the University Hospital of Parma between May 2012 and December 2016, we performed 53 autologous fat transplantations for secondary breast reconstruction patients with an average age of 49 years (range: 34-65 y)...

Surgery remains the mainstay of treatment for breast cancer, including complete or partial mastectomy and lumpectomy. Breast reconstruction has gained popularity mainly due to its tremendous impact on the psychological status of the patients. Autologous fat grafting is a well-established method used in cosmetic surgery; however, fat re-absoprtion, fat necrosis, calcifications and oil-cyst formation are some usually encountered complications limiting the efficacy of this approach. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has recently been postulated as a promising method for tissue regeneration since it contains high levels of diverse human growth factors...

BACKGROUND: Plasmablastic lymphoma (PBL) is relatively new clinical entity described as a distinct subtype of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). It is characterized by its aggressive nature and proliferation of large neoplastic cells resembling immunoblasts including cells with more obvious plasmacytic differentiation. In this case report, we describe an unexpected finding of PBL associated with a mature cystic teratoma of the ovary in a young immune competent woman. CASE PRESENTATION: A 19-year old woman was admitted to the hospital with generalized lymphadenopathy, a pelvic tumor mass measuring 35 × 30 cm and a 4 cm lump in her right breast...

We present the first report of intraosseous meningioma accompanied by intradural cyst formation. A 76-year-old woman had previously undergone breast cancer treatment, so the preoperative diagnosis was metastatic breast cancer. This case reminds us that the possibility of meningioma should be kept in mind in patients with breast cancer, irrespective of neuroimaging findings.

INTRODUCTION: We sought to characterize changes in healthcare spending associated with the onset of 22 endometriosis-related comorbidities. METHODS: Women aged 18-49 years with endometriosis (N = 180,278) were extracted from 2006-2015 de-identified Clinformatics(®) DataMart claims data. For 22 comorbidities, comorbidity patients were identified on the basis of having a first comorbidity diagnosis after their initial endometriosis diagnosis. Controls were identified on the basis of having no comorbidity diagnosis and were matched 1:1 to comorbidity patients on demographics and baseline spending...

Autologous fat grafting is commonly used for soft tissue augmentation, but its unpredictably high resorption rate remains a major limitation. Although adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ASCs) are an attractive candidate for enhancing graft retention, their poor posttransplantation viability limits their application. The authors aimed to evaluate the effect of incubated ASCs on microfat graft survival in an immunocompromised mouse model. Lipoaspirates for microfat injection were collected from the wasted lower abdominal adipose tissues of 5 patients who had undergone breast reconstructive surgery with an abdominal flap...

BACKGROUND: In their descriptions of the ideal breast, most studies have focused primarily on the dimensions, shape, and proportions. The distance between the breasts has only very rarely been considered. The intermammary distance and the medial symmetry between the breasts are important parts of the outcome of surgery and have a strong bearing on patient satisfaction. However, the control surgeons have over these factors is only relative, and depends heavily on the underlying anatomical characteristics of the patients...

BACKGROUND: Dysregulated DNA repair and cell proliferation controls are essential driving forces in mammary tumorigenesis. BCCIP was originally identified as a BRCA2 and CDKN1A interacting protein that has been implicated in maintenance of genomic stability, cell cycle regulation, and microtubule dynamics. The aims of this study were to determine whether BCCIP deficiency contributes to mammary tumorigenesis, especially for a subset of breast cancers with 53BP1 abnormality, and to reveal the mechanistic implications of BCCIP in breast cancer interventions...

Krukenberg tumor, defined as metastatic adenocarcinoma to the ovary containing at least 10% signet ring cells, usually arises from the stomach but can also originate from other sites. We reviewed 17 metastatic breast carcinomas to the ovary with signet ring cells to potentially identify features indicative of mammary origin as opposed to other possible primary sites. The patients ranged from 41 to 76 (mean, 53.6) yr. Fourteen had a prior history of invasive breast carcinoma (invasive ductal carcinoma, 4; invasive lobular carcinoma, 3; adenocarcinoma not otherwise specified, 3; carcinoma with ductal and lobular features, 2; and unspecified carcinoma, 2) and metastases were identified 2 to 284 (mean, 79) mo after the original diagnosis...

Prevotella buccae is a Gram-negative anaerobic rod involved in some human infections. We report the first case of an infected breast cyst in a non-puerperal women due to this pathogen. A 53-year-old woman presented with pain and a cystic lesion in the right breast. Culture of abscess drainage resulted in isolation of P. buccae. High level of resistance to metronidazole was documented. Treatment with drainage and amoxicillin-clavulanate was established, and improvement of this infection was observed.
