RATIONALE: Occult breast cancer (OBC) is a rare type of breast cancer without any symptoms in the breast and is often presented with initial symptoms of axillary lymph node metastasis or other metastases. The low incidence rates of OBC make it a great challenge to diagnose and cure. PATIENT CONCERNS: Our case was a 58-year-old female affected by dizziness and fatigue for nearly a month. Blood tests revealed anemia and thrombocytopenia, and pathological results of a bone marrow biopsy confirmed the metastatic carcinoma...

PURPOSE: To investigate the visibility of mammographically occult breast cancers on diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) versus ultrasound. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Mammographically occult breast cancers (n=60) initially detected on contrast-enhanced MRI that underwent pre-biopsy targeted ultrasound were retrospectively evaluated for visibility on DWI and ultrasound. RESULTS: More cancers were visible on DWI than ultrasound (78% vs. 63%; p=0.049), with 32 (53%) visible on both and 7 (12%) not visible on either...

BACKGROUND: Women with impalpable or poorly palpable breast cancer require radiologically guided localisation prior to breast conserving surgery. Radioguided Occult Lesion Localisation using Iodine-125 Seed (ROLLIS) is an emerging alternative to conventional Hookwire Localisation (HWL). We compared ROLLIS with conventional HWL with respect to patient reported stress and discomfort related to the localisation procedure. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From September 2013 to January 2016, women who were eligible for breast conserving surgery with impalpable or poorly palpable histologically confirmed invasive or in-situ carcinoma were recruited to the multi-centre ROLLIS randomised controlled trial and underwent either ROLLIS or HWL...

PURPOSE: Non-invasive early accurate detection of malignant breast cancer is paramount to the clinical management of the life-threatening disease. Here, we aim to test a small peptide targeted MRI contrast agent, ZD2-Gd(HP-DO3A), specific to an oncoprotein, extradomain-B fibronectin (EDB-FN), in the tumor microenvironment for MR molecular imaging of breast cancer. METHOD: EDB-FN expression in 4T1 and MDA-MB-231 cancers was analyzed with quantitative real-time PCR and western blot...

INTRODUCTION: In breast cancer patients, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a supportive method characterized by high sensitivity. Its indications in the preoperative assessment are not clearly defined. More likely to benefit from preoperative MRI are younger women, women with a dense breast on mammography and patients with invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC). The aim of this study was to assess utilization of MRI and resulting benefits in preoperative tumour staging of ILC in patients treated in our institution...

INTRODUCTION: Preoperative assessment of pure Ductal Carcinoma Insitu (DCIS) is essential in the surgical planning. The role of Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has long been debated. The impact of MRI on the management of High Grade (HG) DCIS was assessed, whether it accurately captures the true size of this entity in comparison to conventional imaging, and, if MRI use would reduce the number of re-excision surgery. METHOD: Ninety-one consecutive patients with HG DCIS, who were identified from a prospectively collected data at Kettering General Hospital between April 2011 and December 2015...

RATIONALE: Although rare, occult breast cancer (OBC) originates from breast tissue. Its primary lesions cannot be identified by clinical examination or imaging; therefore, the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis remain controversial. PATIENT CONCERNS: This study comprised 5 female OBC patients who were admitted to the Affiliated Hospital of Guizhou Medical University for painless axillary lumps. DIAGNOSES: F-flurodeoxyglucose (F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) indicated metastasis in the ipsilateral axillary lymph nodes...

There is a lack of investigation into the biological characteristics and preoperative systemic therapy (PST) for occult breast cancer (OBC). For this study, departmental records in Breast Disease Center of Peking University First Hospital from January 2008 to December 2015 were retrospectively reviewed to identify cases of OBC. Eleven cases were included, and all patients were female, with a median age of 56 (range: 29-75) years. The sensitivity of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was 100%, and the false positive rate was 33...

OBJECTIVE: To review the radio-pathologic features of symptomatic breast cancers not detected at digital mammography (DM) and digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective analysis of 169 lesions from symptomatic patients with breast cancer that were studied with DM, DBT, ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance (MR). We identified occult lesions (true false negatives) in DM and DBT. Clinical data, density, US and MR findings were analyzed as well as histopathological results...

OBJECTIVE: Contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (CESM) is a reliable problem solving tool in the work-up of women recalled from breast cancer screening. We evaluated additional findings caused by CESM alone and outweighed them against the disadvantages of this technique. METHODS: From December 2012 to December 2015, all women recalled from screening who underwent CESM were considered for this study. Radiation exposure and number of adverse contrast reactions were analysed...

Importance: Nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) offers superior cosmetic outcomes and has been gaining wide acceptance; however, its role among patients with BRCA mutations remains controversial. Objective: To report on the oncologic safety of NSM and provide evidence-based data to patients and health care professionals regarding preservation of the nipple-areolar complex during a risk-reducing mastectomy in a population with BRCA mutations. Design, Setting, and Participants: We retrospectively reviewed the outcomes of 9 institutions' experience with prophylactic NSM from 1968 to 2013 in a cohort of patients with BRCA mutations...

BACKGROUND: Nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) has gained widespread popularity in recent years. Nonetheless, patient selection, technical consideration and oncological safety of its extension to breast cancer treatment remain uncertain. Few publications have reviewed the application of NSM in Asian populations. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 91 women with malignant breast tumours, who underwent 97 NSM in Hong Kong Sanatorium and Hospital from 2009 to 2015. Breast cancer patients who required mastectomy and opted for immediate reconstruction were considered for NSM if they showed no obvious nipple involvement clinically...

BACKGROUND: Due to the spread of mammographic screening programs, a constant increase of clinically-occult breast cancer diagnosis has been registered. A correct approach to non-palpable breast lesions requires an accurate intra-operative localization in order to achieve a complete surgical resection. Aim of this paper is to describe the state of the art of the US-guided procedures such as Radio-guided Occult Lesion Localization (ROLL) and Radio-guided Seed Localization (RSL) in comparison to the most widely adopted Wire-Guided Localization (WGL)...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the value of 18F-FDG PET/CT in detection of bone marrow (BM) metastasis in breast cancer which is considered an early stage of bone metastasis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Retrospectively, breast cancer patients with bone metastasis were included. BM metastasis was considered if the lesion was PET positive/CT occult while bone metastasis was considered if the lesion was PET positive/ CT positive. BM metastases were observed sequentially on F18-FDG PET/CT...
