A 54-year-old-woman who underwent augmentation mammoplasty with silicone gel implants 30 years previously, visited our hospital with complaints of bloody nipple discharge, redness and itching of her right breast. Cancer of the right breast was diagnosed by dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination with Gadolinium (Gd)-DTPA enhancement. Radical mastectomy was subsequently performed. The histopathological findings demonstrated scirrhous and inflammatory breast cancer with invasion of dermal lymphatics.
