Among women, breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer in the developing countries. The gold standard method for the evaluation of breast cancer detection involves microscopic testing of a hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) ‐stained tissue biopsy. In our study, we propose a pretrained Inception‐v3 convolutional neural network (CNN) with reverse active learning for the classification of healthy and malignancy breast tissue using optical coherence tomography (OCT) images. The present method will be helpful for real‐ time, rapid, in‐vivo, intra‐operative margin assessment over large surface areas while preserving...

Rationale: Breast cancer metastasis to the esophagus is uncommon. To our knowledge, the present case is the first report of breast cancer with dysphagia as the initial symptom. Patient concerns: A 62-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital for progressive dysphagia. Diagnoses: Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle biopsy of the esophageal lesion found poorly differentiated carcinoma, and surgical resection of the breast nodule revealed invasive ductal carcinoma. Interventions: The patient underwent an esophagectomy, and the immunohistochemistry of surgical specimen was identified as metastatic breast canc...

ConclusionsFNA of marked nodes after chemotherapy has a high false ‐negative rate. This highlights the need for surgical staging of the axilla after NAC to assess the response.

ConclusionAlthough clinical and radiological findings of patients with GM may mimic those of breast carcinoma, our study showed that women of childbearing age, especially among Hispanic ethnicity with a recent history of pregnancy or high prolactin level and newly tender mass-like lesion, in addition to new focal asymmetry on mammogram and heterogeneous hypoechoic irregular-shaped mass on ultrasound exam, should raise concern for GM. Non-invasive approach and clinical follow-up were the preferred treatment method.

Conclusion: This study confirms that the MG and ultrasound (USG) when combined have significantly higher sensitivity and NPV than observed for a single modality in detecting the both benign and malignant lesions of the breast.

Authors: Lee EJ, Chang YW, Oh JH, Hwang J, Hong SS, Kim HJ Abstract Pediatric breast disease is uncommon, and primary breast carcinoma in children is extremely rare. Therefore, the approach used to address breast lesions in pediatric patients differs from that in adults in many ways. Knowledge of the normal imaging features at various stages of development and the characteristics of breast disease in the pediatric population can help the radiologist to make confident diagnoses and manage patients appropriately. Most breast diseases in children are benign or associated with breast development, suggesting a need for ...

Rationale: Since primary pure squamous cell carcinoma of the breast is a rare disease, few reports describe the characteristic findings on performing preoperative imaging that can be used to distinguish it from normal breast cancer. The rapid evolution and lack of an established method of treatment has resulted in several reports of advanced cases of primary pure squamous cell carcinoma of the breast. Patient concerns: Case 1 was a 44-year-old woman with an elastic, hard tumor in the left C region. Ultrasonographic analysis revealed a maximal 11-mm hypoechoic area. Histologically, the tumor was a well-differentiated s...

In this study, we aim to compare physical examination and ultrasound of axilla and FNAC and assess their accuracy in preoperative staging of axilla. This was a prospective observational study. Patients with biopsy-proven in vasive early-stage breast carcinoma, consenting to be part of the study, underwent ultrasound (US) of ipsilateral axilla with guided FNAC, when indicated and underwent surgery which included complete axillary dissection. Postoperative histopathology was compared to preoperative US and guided cytolog y (if done), to correlate the latter’s efficacy in detecting positive axillary nodes. Clinically, 9...
