- Diagnosis of Nipple Discharge: Value of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Ultrasonography in Comparison with Ductoscopy. [Journal Article]
- BMBalkan Med J 2017 Apr 05; 34(2):119-126
- CONCLUSIONS: Magnetic resonance imaging and ductoscopy had no statistical superiority over each other, however they were superior to ultrasonography in the diagnosis of pathologic nipple discharge. Magnetic resonance imaging may be highly sensitive for diagnosing nipple discharge with new techniques and sequences and a non-invasive method that more advantageous for showing ductal tree visualization and is able to detect completely obstructed intraductal lesions.

A 64-year-old African-American female presented with nonbloody nipple discharge. Clinical and cytological examination of the discharge was normal. The mammography suggested pleomorphic calcification in the left breast. A stereotactic biopsy showed ductal carcinoma in situ and her estrogen receptor/progesterone receptor/human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-neu receptor were negative. We removed the tumor tissue through lumpectomy and found that the mass was invasive ductal carcinoma. This case report highlights invasive ductal carcinoma, presenting with unilateral nipple discharge.

The problems with setting up breastfeading are common and are associated with a heightened risk of weening. The main motives brought up by the mothers for early weening were fatigue and the suboptimal infant breastfeeding behaviour (SIBB). The goal of this study is to describe the fatigue levels of breastfeading women who gave birth to healthy full term babies in a hospital setting and the SIBB. This study also examines the relation between these two variables. This descriptive correlational and cross-sectional study was conducted with breasfeeding women who gave birth to healthy, full term, single babies at the CHU in Moncton between June and September 2013. Fatigue Continuum Form and Infant Breastfeeding Assesement Tool were each used to measure fatigue and SIBB. Analysis was done using Spearman’s correlation coefficient (r) and bivariate associations where measured using the chi-square test (χ2). Sixty-four mother child dyads were included in this study. 64.1 % of mothers experienced moderate fatigue. Maternal fatigue was associated with parity (p=0,003), the mothers’ level of education (p=0,043), the child’s birth weight (p=0,035), the delay before introducing the breast (p=0,001) and the frequency of feedings on D0 (p=0,037). The prevalence of SIBB was 57.8 % on day 0 (D0) and 25 % on day 1 (D1). SIBB is associated with a frequency of less than eight feedings in the first 24 hours (D0 (p=0,001) and D1(p=0,003)), to the primiparity (D1) (p=0,046), nipple types (D1) (p=0,010), previous breastfeeding experience (D1) (p=0,046). Skin on skin contact in the delivery room (D1) (p=0,041) and the delay before the first introduction to the breast (D1) (p=0,027). À significant correlation was noted between maternal fatigue and SIBB on D0 (r=0,196 ; p=0,029) and between SIBB on D0 and on D1 (r=0,661 ; p<0.001). A special supervision of mother-child dyads that are at risk is necessary in order to benefit from extra support during hospital stays and following their discharge from the hospital.

- CONCLUSIONS: For DCIS patients, age, first symptom and tumor size are independent predictors of breast surgery. The choice of axillary lymph node surgery is influenced by age, biopsy, operation type, and tumor size. Different surgical treatment options has no significant effect on disease-free survival and overall survival in DCIS patients.

We report a case of breast cancer with microinvasion and lymph node metastasis. The patient was a 72-year-old woman who had spontaneous nipple discharge from her left breast. There was no detectable lesion on mammographyor duct endoscopy. Ultrasonography showed a low echoic lesion, 23×15mm in diameter, in the CD area of her left breast. Contrastenhanced MRI showed a high intensityarea, 25mm in diameter, in her left breast, so microdochectomywas performed. The histopathological diagnosis was invasive ductal carcinoma(invasion of 2mm)and the surgical margin was positive. Therefore, she underwent breast conserving surgeryplus axillaryly mph node dissection. The pathological diagnosis from the resected surgical specimen was invasive ductal carcinoma with micro lymph node metastasis, positive for ER and PgR and negative for HER2/neu protein expression. The Ki-67 labeling index was 10% and the surgical margins were negative. She was treated with radiation and endocrine therapy as adjuvant therapy. One year and 6 months after surgery, she was well without metastasis.

In acute leukemia, leukemic infiltration of the breast is extremely rare. We report a case of biphenotypic acute leukemia (BAL) that presented as a breast mass. A 30-year-old woman presented with a 4-month history of a right breast mass with nipple discharge and easy fatigue. She had received chemotherapy and peripheral blood stem cell transplantation for BAL and had been in complete remission for the last 2 years. Core needle biopsy of the breast mass revealed monomorphous infiltrates of blast cells with round nuclei and fine chromatin, consistent with leukemic infiltration. Subsequent bone marrow biopsy showed diffuse infiltration of immature cells. However, bone marrow karyotyping showed 46, XY, suggesting complete engraftment of transplanted donor cells. This is the report of BAL recurring as a breast mass. In the differential diagnosis of a breast mass, extramedullary relapse should be considered when the patient has a history of leukemia.
