Metastatic breast cancer to the adductor magnus; a case report and literature overview.

We report a case of a patient with a history of stage IIA infiltrating lobular carcinoma of the right breast presenting with a metastatic lesion in the right adductor magnus. She was treated four years prior to the onset of the metastases with a modified radical mastectomy but refused postoperative chemotherapy or adjunctive radiation.

ConclusionWe performed cholecystectomy by using IFC to identify the aberrant subvesical bile duct. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report showing the fluorescence image of an aberrant subvesical bile duct in a state of nature.

ConclusionsRobotic transanal TME is a very recent procedure. Acclaimed greatest advantage of robotic transanal TME is the facilitation of dissection with an in-line view, which translates in an improved surgical field exposure and visualization. Further investigations are needed to assure the actual value of robotic transanal approach.

ConclusionNo conclusion can be drawn on the contribution of somatostatin analogs and immunosuppressant in the occurrence of severe cholecystitis. Prophylactic cholecystectomy is not indicated in patients with this medication.

ConclusionThe incidence of midline and lateral port site recurrence after laparoscopy for diagnosis or resection of ovarian cancer has not been determined. Limitation of trochar sites to the midline may reduce the extent of abdominal wall disease spread.

ConclusionsPeritoneal tunnels in the inguinal region or at the porta hepatis should be opened by surgical dissection so that all foci of peritoneal metastases are removed at a complete cytoreductive surgery and these sites treated with chemotherapy.

CONCLUSION: Metastatic lobular carcinoma of the breast is a rare entity with a heterogeneous range of clinical presentations. Detection of eventual gastrointestinal metastases are complicated to assess. ILC has various scale of glycolytic activity both in the primary lesion as well in the metastatic foci. When the level of suspicion is high and there is no uptake of FDG, further investigations are necessary. KEY WORD: Abdominal metastasis, FGD PET-TC, Lobular Breast Cancer.
