Case of the Week (week 43, 2021)

53-year-old female, test mammogram.

Mammoscreen points to increased opacity of the left breast QSE.

The localized image shows an opacity with irregular and spiculated contours.

Breast ultrasound confirms 7 mm irregular hypoechogene formation of the left breast QSE.

The microbiopsia finds an atypical epitheliosis.

Faced with the discrepancy between imaging and histology, a macrobiopsy is performed and confirms an infiltrating tubular carcinime and lesions of ductal carcinoma in situ.
