Carcinoma right breast

Case contributed by Dr Garth Kruger


A 35 yr old lactating patient presents with an enlarging mass at 6 o'clock right breast

Patient Data

Age: 35 years
Gender: Female

On ultrasound the patient had a 5.5 cm solid lobulated lesion which on biopsy was confirmed as an IDC. The lymphnodes in the right axilla were enlarged and FNA confirmed metastatic adenocarcinoma.

After 2 months of neo adjuvant therapy the lesion has shrunk to juts more than 3 cm in diameter.

After almost 4 months of therapy the lesion measures 8 mm and the lymphnodes in the axilla are morphologically normal.

Case Discussion

A spectacular response to neoadjuvant therapy in a young patient with a very large breast carcinoma.
