Unusual case of Paget disease of the nipple diagnosed by nipple scraping cytology

We present a rare case of Paget disease of the nipple without the typical characteristics, detected by simple nipple scraping technique. A 62-year-old woman presented with a small fissure on the left nipple with scant clear nippledischarge. There were no other changes to the nipple-areola complex. The mammography and ultrasound were unremarkable. However, nipplescraping provided the immediate cytological diagnosis of Paget disease. Breast MRI with core biopsy showed high grade ductal carcinoma in situwith suggestion of microinvasion, confirmed histologically after mastectomy. Nipple scraping is a simple and inexpensive technique, which can be...

Authors: Musio F Abstract INTRODUCTION: Anemia has and will continue to be a central theme in medicine particularly as clinicians are treating a burgeoning population of complex multi-organ system processes. As a result of multiple randomized controlled trials (RCTs), meta-analyses, and societal recommendations overly restrictive paradigms and under-administration of erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESAs) have likely been followed by clinicians among all specialties. AREAS COVERED: A review of anemia in the context of chronic kidney disease, hematologic malignancies and cancer is presented with focus on the e...

CONCLUSIONS: Immunohistochemistry seems to be a promising option not only in clinical recognition, but also in the selection and monitoring of treatment effects. However, these methods have not yet recommended for routine clinical use. PMID: 33032462 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsBreast cancer with concomitant PD was associated with more aggressive tumor characteristics and worse survival outcomes. The HR status, HER2 status, and combined molecular subtype could not affect the prognosis of breast cancer with PD. Moreover, a portion of the PD ‐DCIS cases were invasive breast cancer cases that required special treatment.

CONCLUSIONS: - Rare, invasive, primary nipple carcinomas typically present as subtle nipple thickening or an exudative crust on the skin. Imaging studies are often nonrevealing. A variety of histologic and biologic types of carcinomas occur, similar to cancers arising deeper in the breast. Although the carcinomas invaded into the dermis, some with skin ulceration, the likelihood of lymph node metastasis was no higher than carcinomas of similar sizes. Patients who choose to preserve their nipple(s) should be aware of the possibility of breast cancer arising at that site and to bring any observed changes to the attention of ...

The objective was to determine the 10‐year oncological safety of nipple‐sparing mastectomy (NSM) in patients diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). The use of NSM preserves the nipple‐areola complex (NAC). As residual fibroglandular breast tissue can remain behind the spared NAC, its use for patient with breast cancer is controversial. The oncologic outcomes and complication rates after performing NSM compared to other techniques are still under debate and a concern when treating patients with breast cancer. We retrospectively reviewed 69 consecutive NSM patients diagnosed with DCIS during 1984‐2016 at the...

Authors: Kim EY, Do SI, Hyun K, Park YL, Kim DH, Chae SW, Sohn JH, Park CH Abstract PURPOSE: In the present study, we evaluated the levels of urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA) and plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 (PAI-1) by performing immunohistochemical staining to determine whether they were reliable prognostic markers in patients with breast cancer. METHODS: Demographic and clinicopathological parameters of 214 patients with invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) and 80 patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) who were diagnosed and treated from 2006 to 2010 were analyzed. Tissue microarray was const...

Publication date: Available online 16 September 2015 Source:Diagnostic and Interventional Imaging Author(s): D. Geffroy, I. Doutriaux-Dumoulins Clinical examination of the nipple is part of normal breast screening procedures. Abnormal processes of benign or malignant nature may be reflected by erythema, erosion, swelling or acquired inversion. In patients presenting with a persistent unilateral nipple lesion, it is advisable to collect a sample to exclude Paget's disease of the nipple, a rare form of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). Imaging should be performed to detect breast cancer, which is found in more than 80% of...
