There are diffuse skeletal, predominantly osteolytic lesions, involving the skull, spine, ribs, pelvis and proximal parts of the femur bilaterally.
There are also pathological fractures of the T4 and T10 vertebrae.
In 2014 the patient was diagnosed with invasive lobular breast carcinoma and underwent tumour removal surgery, as well as radiotherapy and chemotherapy with FAC protocol, which was interrupted because of prolonged pancytopenia.
Bone marrow biopsy showed diffuse metastatic infiltration.
The patient is now on palliative pain therapy and regular outpatient follow-up examinations.
