Acellular dermal matrix (ADM) such as Alloderm(®) is sometimes used in tissue reconstruction in primary and reconstructive breast surgeries. As ADM is incorporated into the native tissues, the evolving imaging findings that would correlate with varying degrees of host migration and neoangiogenesis into the matrix can be challenging to recognize. In the setting of a palpable or clinical area of concern after breast reconstructive surgery following breast cancer, confident diagnosis of a mass representing ADM rather than recurring or developing disease can be challenging...

Subtype heterogeneity for breast cancer risk factors has been suspected, potentially reflecting etiological differences and implicating risk prediction. However, reports are conflicting regarding presence of heterogeneity for many exposures. To examine subtype heterogeneity across known breast cancer risk factors, we conducted a case-control analysis of 2,632 breast cancers and 15,945 controls in Sweden. Molecular subtype was predicted from pathology-record derived immunohistochemistry markers by a classifier trained on PAM50 subtyping...

Pseudoangiomatous Stromal Hyperplasia (PASH) of the breast is a rare benign proliferating breast condition. We report a case of a 26-year-old female who was being worked up for infertility and was incidentally noted to have a well defined lump in the left breast. Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) and core needle biopsy of the lump were suggestive of benign breast disease. Patient underwent excision of the lump. Histopathology report of which was suggestive of PASH of the breast.

INTRODUCTION: Granulomatous Mastitis (GM) is a rare, benign, inflammatory disease of the breast. It is a well known mimicker of malignancy, clinically and radiologically. Patients are often subjected to number of tests for the right diagnosis. Non-specific Granulomatous Mastitis (NGM) and Tubercular Mastitis (TBM) are chief among the various causes of GM. They are important to be diagnosed early as their treatment varies significantly. Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) is simple, patient friendly and primary investigation modality in cases of lump in breast...

INTRODUCTION: Breast Cancer (BC) cases are rising alarmingly all over the world and India is not an exception. This rising trend is due to an increased age at first child birth, decreased breast feeding, and the changing lifestyle mostly in urban India. With the advent of more sensitive methodologies and research works in this field, it has been suggested that Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of breast cancer besides other established tumour markers...

High social awareness of breast diseases and the rise in breast imaging facilities have led to an increase in the detection of even rare benign and malignant breast lesions. Breast lesions are associated with a broad spectrum of imaging characteristics, and each radiologic imaging technique reflects different characteristics of them. We aimed to increase familiarity of the radiologist with these uncommon lesions as well as to correlate histopathologic findings with the radiologic imaging features of the tumors...

Rosai-Dorfman disease (also known as sinus histiocytosis with massive lymphadenopathy) is a rare benign proliferative disorder of histiocytes that typically involves the lymph nodes and can also involve extranodal sites. Rosai-Dorfman disease confined to the breast is extremely rare, but important to recognize as it can mimic malignancy. We present the case of a 63-year-old woman who presented with a palpable breast lump that was highly suspicious for malignancy based on mammogram and ultrasound appearance...

Breast metastases from extramammary cancers are rare and usually related to poor prognosis. The extramammary tumors most frequently exhibiting breast metastases are melanoma, lymphomas, ovarian cancer, lung, neuroendocrine tumors, and sarcomas. Due to the lack of reliable and specific clinical or radiological signs for the diagnosis of breast metastases, a combination of techniques is needed to differentiate these lesions from primary breast carcinoma or even benign breast lesions. Multiple imaging methods may be used to evaluate these patients, including mammography, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET/CT)...

BACKGROUND: Long-term severe hyperparathyroidism leads to thinning of cortical bone and cystic bone defects referred to as osteitis fibrosa cystica. Cysts filled with hemosiderin deposits may appear colored as "brown tumors." Osteitis fibrosa cystica and brown tumors are occasionally visualized as multiple, potentially corticalis-disrupting bone lesions mimicking metastases by bone scintigraphy or (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of a 72-year-old white woman who presented with malaise, weight loss, and hypercalcemia...

Women with benign breast diseases (BBD) have a high risk of breast cancer. However, no biomarkers have been clearly established to predict cancer in these women. Our aim was to explore whether estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), and Ki67 expression stratify risk of breast cancer in screened women with BBD. We conducted a nested case-control study. Women with breast cancer and prior BBDs (86 cases) were matched to women with prior BBDs who were free from breast cancer (172 controls). The matching factors were age at BBD diagnosis, type of BBD, and follow-up time since BBD diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Nonpalpable breast lesions require localization before excision. This is most commonly performed with a wire (WL) or a radioactive seed (SL), which is placed into the breast under radiographic guidance. Although there are advantages of each modality, there are no guidelines to address which patients should undergo WL versus SL. We investigated factors influencing the selection of SL versus WL at our institution and assessed patient satisfaction with each procedure. METHODS: Patients undergoing preoperative localization of nonpalpable breast lesions from May 2014 through August 2015 were included...

Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women due to distinct cancer subtypes associated with early recurrence and aggressive metastatic progression. High lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (PLA2G7) expression has previously been associated with aggressive disease and metastasis in prostate cancer. Here, we explore the expression pattern and functional role of PLA2G7 in breast cancer. First, a bioinformatic analysis of genome-wide gene expression data from 970 breast samples was carried out to evaluate the expression pattern of PLA2G7 mRNA in breast cancer...
