The ﬁnal stage was stage I, T1N0M0 disease. The patient was treated with four cycles of doxorubicin (Adriamycin) and cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) chemotherapy and radiation therapy, with a boost to the lumpectomy bed. Tamoxifen was started after completion of chemotherapy. This case raises a variety of points for additional discussion. The patient was called back for calciﬁcations, which were benign in morphology. Fortunately, the callback provided an opportunity for the mammographically subtle ﬁnding of architectural distortion to be suspected.
TEACHING POINTS This case illustrates several teaching points. It is important to compare screening mammograms Bilateral MLO mammographic views from 1992. The breasts are mixed fat and ﬁbroglandular density. There are no apparent abnormalities. FIGURE 1. Bilateral MLO views performed in 1996. In retrospect, there is the subtle beginning of a developing asymmetry in the upper outer right breast (arrow). FIGURE 2. Bilateral MLO views from 2001. The asymmetry (arrow) in the right breast has increased in size and density since the prior examination.
C, For comparison, a prior year’s MLO mammograms. FIGURE 1. CASE 4 Slow-growing microlobulated colloid carcinoma An asymptomatic 65-year-old female underwent screening mammography, which showed an enlarging circumscribed mass in the central right breast (Figures 1 and 2). Ultrasound demonstrated a corresponding hypoechoic solid mass (Figure 3). Subsequent ultrasound-guided core needle biopsy was performed and yielded a diagnosis of invasive colloid carcinoma. Ultrasound shows a highly suspicious corresponding mass that is taller than wide and very hypoechoic, with irregular and lobular margins.
