Vascular tumors of the breast are rare and may pose a diagnostic challenge. Breast hemangioma is a very rare benign vascular neoplasm accounting for 0.4% of all breast tumors. It is most commonly detected as an incidental microscopic finding in biopsy specimens obtained for unrelated reasons. We describe here a very rare case of a sinusoidal breast hemangioma in a postmenopausal patient who presented with a palpable breast mass. A complete surgical resection was performed because the tumor exhibited atypical imaging features...

Lymphoma is a rare malignancy of the breast, comprising approximately 0.04 to 0.5% of breast malignancies. Because the clinical findings of breast lymphoma are nonspecific and similar to those of breast carcinoma, it is important to distinguish breast lymphoma from other breast disease on the basis of radiologic findings. Elastography is an interesting imaging tool that reflects the tissue stiffness, increasingly being used in the evaluation of breast tumours. However, only a limited number of studies have focused on the elastographic findings of breast lymphoma...

Reviews on circulating biomarkers in breast cancer usually focus on one single biomarker or a selective group of biomarkers. An overview summarizing the discovery and evaluation of all blood-based biomarkers in metastatic breast cancer is lacking. This systematic review aims to identify the available evidence of known blood-based biomarkers in metastatic breast cancer, regarding their clinical utility and state-of-the-art position in the validation process. The initial search yielded 1078 original studies, of which 420 were assessed for eligibility...

BACKGROUND: Pericardial effusions can cause considerable morbidity and potentially may lead to mortality. Malignant pericardial effusions are uncommon, and data on malignancies encountered in pericardial effusion cytology specimens are limited. METHODS: Relevant records of all pericardial effusions from January 2008 to September 2014 were examined and compared with pericardial biopsy results when performed. Discrepant cases were reviewed to determine the cause of the disagreement...

INTRODUCTION: Phyllodes tumors (PTs) are rare fibroepithelial tumors of the breast which are classified as benign, borderline, or malignant. Malignant PTs account for <1% of malignant breast tumors, and borderline tumors have potential to progress to malignant tumors. Metastatic recurrences are most commonly documented in bone and lungs. We report an extremely rare presentation of recurrent malignant PTs involving the brain, lung, lymph nodes, and bone. CASE: A 66-year-old female presented with a large breast mass...

BACKGROUND: Up to 90% of patients undergoing breast cancer surgery suffer from seroma formation, which can cause discomfort and various complications after mastectomy. This retrospective observational cohort study aimed to elucidate whether flap fixation with fibrin sealant (ARTISS) tissue glue reduces seroma formation and seroma aspiration after mastectomy when compared with flap fixation using Vicryl sutures and when compared with a conventional wound closure technique. METHODS: All patients undergoing mastectomy due to invasive breast cancer or ductal carcinoma in situ were eligible for inclusion...

OBJECTIVE: The feasibility of breast vacuum-assisted biopsy (VAB) guided by cone-beam CT (CBCT) was assessed. The initial clinical performance of CT-guided breast VAB was compared with that of established prone stereotactic VAB. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective clinical trial, VABs were performed for women with mammographically suspicious breast lesions using a dedicated breast CBCT protocol. The technical success rate, total intervention time, and complications were documented and compared with examinations performed by prone stereotactic VAB...

Tumor expression of programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1) is associated with immune evasion in a variety of malignancies, including a subset of triple-negative breast carcinomas, and may mark cancers as susceptible to PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor therapies. We herein characterize PD-L1 expression in breast cancers across the full range of histomorphologies and investigate its intratumoral heterogeneity and fidelity across primaries and metastases. A total of 245 primary and 40 metastatic (20 nodal, 20 distant) breast carcinomas were evaluated with PD-L1 immunohistochemistry on tissue microarray...

Metastases to breast are much rarer than primary breast tumors. We now present a case of 45-year-old female, who presented with an isolated breast mass. A positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) done revealed hypermetabolic right breast nodules, soft tissue deposits, and multiple nodal involvement. The biopsy from the breast and axillary lymph node showed dense lymphoid infiltrate and was interpreted initially as granulomatous inflammation. However, the lumps were hard and suspicious for primary breast cancer, so an immunohistochemistry for cytokeratin was performed which highlighted the epithelial cell clusters masked within the inflammatory infiltrate and the diagnosis of undifferentiated carcinoma, lymphoepithelioma-like was made...

BACKGROUND: Proliferation may predict response to neoadjuvant therapy of breast cancer and is commonly assessed by manual scoring of slides stained by immunohistochemistry (IHC) for Ki-67 similar to ER and PgR. This method carries significant intra- and inter-observer variability. Automatic scoring of Ki-67 with digital image analysis (qIHC) or assessment of MKI67 gene expression with RT-qPCR may improve diagnostic accuracy. METHODS: Ki-67 IHC visual assessment was compared to the IHC nuclear tool (AperioTM) on core biopsies from a randomized neoadjuvant clinical trial...

BACKGROUND: Most population breast cancer (BC) screening programs use double-reading of 2D-mammography. We recently reported the screening with tomosynthesis or standard mammography-2 (STORM-2) trial, showing that double-read tomosynthesis (pseudo-3D-mammography) detected more BC than double-read 2D-mammography. In this study, we compare screen-detection measures for single-reading of 3D-mammography with those for double-reading of 2D-mammography, to inform screening practice. METHODS: This is a secondary analysis based on STORM-2 which prospectively compared 3D-mammography and 2D-mammography in sequential screen-readings...

INTRODUCTION: Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in the Indian female population. LABC and metastatic breast cancer are the most common stages at presentation in most low-resource countries. Although the incidence of LABC has decreased significantly in countries with enhanced resources thanks to widespread education and screening programs, it remains a daily encounter for surgeons and oncologists in low-resource countries. Neoadjuvant therapy has been studied widely for the treatment of LABC and is followed by locoregional therapy...

BACKGROUND: Lung cancer rarely metastasizes to the breast, and breast metastasis of pulmonary pleomorphic carcinoma has not been previously reported. CASE PRESENTATION: The patient was a 66-year-old woman who became aware of a mass in the right breast and visited a physician. She was referred to our department for close examination, upon which she was diagnosed with double cancer (right breast cancer and left lung cancer). Needle biopsy findings for the mammary tumor were similar to those for the lung biopsy specimen, but spindle cell or metaplastic carcinoma were possibilities...

Cancer progression is associated with an evolving tissue interface of direct epithelial-tumor microenvironment interactions. In biopsies of human breast tumors, extensive alterations in molecular pathways are correlated with cancer staging on both sides of the tumor-stroma interface. These interactions provide a pivotal paracrine signaling to induce malignant phenotype transition, the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). We explored how the direct contact between platelets-fibrin bundles primes metastasis using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) as a source of growth factors and mimics the provisional fibrin matrix between actively growing breast cancer cells and the tumor stroma...
