Case contributed by Dr Garth Kruger

Patient Data

Age: 35 years
Gender: Female

On ultrasound, the patient had a 5.5 cm solid lobulated lesion. The lymph nodes in the right axilla were enlarged.

Biopsy confirmed IDC and FNA confirmed metastatic lymphadenopathy. 

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 lymph nodes in the axilla are morphologically normal.
