Dear Friends,

This week I’m showing screening mammograms of a 39-year-old woman in whom an abnormality was found.

Diagnosis:
1. Radial scar
2. Carcinoma
3. Surgical scar
4. All of the above

    Radial scar in upper aouter quadrant

  2. Katerina says:

    In the upper-outer quadrant of the left breast there is a stellate lesion which is better seen in MLO view. In CC view the lesion would not be easily discernible if it didn’t produce a “tent sign”. The stellate lesion has no dark center and the spiculations are short(option 1 is ruled out). There is no skin thickening or suspicious microcalcifications. There are no enlarged lymphnodes in the left axilla.
    I choose 2.carcinoma

  3. gus says:

    i agree with katerina plus we have asymmetry in the central – internal quadrant in CC view in the R breast.
    we need compress view first und U/S in both lesions.
    mine first choose is 1.carcinoma but if i am wrong with the second lesion could be 4. All of the above

  4. Ricardo Macareno says:

    Until proven otherwise: carcinoma.

    Non ho esperienza in senologia; tuttavia alcune considerazioni vanno fatte. Perchè uno “screening” mammografico già a 39 anni? C’è familiarità genetica per Cr: BR-CR1-BR-CR2? L’anamnesi è postiva per un precedente chirurgico,es. fibro-adenoma? la DD tra un radial-scar e un Cr si potrebbe fare con una RM con mdc paramagnetico, prima di un prelievo cito-istologico su guida US?L’esame clinico, parte “integrante” di una visita senologica, cosa ha trovato?

    Distorsione dell’architettura ghiandolare: approfondimento! 1’ecografia. 2′ RM. 3’Biopsia.

  9. genchi bari italia says:

    caro dott.Pepe ed io cosa avevo detto circa l’RM con mdc come gold-standard per la diagnosi?
