  • [Title] Oncoplastic resection of retroareolar breast cancer: central quadrantectomy and reconstruction by local skin-glandular flap.
  • BACKGROUND: Patients with central breast neoplasms account for 5 to 20% of breast cancer cases and, for a long time, they have been denied Breast Conservation Surgery (BCS) and conventionally treated with mastectomy.
  • The high incidence of Nipple-Areola-Complex (NAC) involvement usually associated with these tumors necessitates nipple and areolar resection together with an adequate safety margin around the tumor, which yields an unacceptable cosmetic result.
  • In this study central quadrantectomy and breast reconstruction by an infero-laterally based pedicled flap were evaluated.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study comprised 23 women with central breast tumors treated at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Cairo University and at the Aswan Cancer Center, Egyptian Ministry of Health.
  • Twenty-two had a palpable mass, while only 1 had Paget's disease of the nipple without mass.
  • Only 9 women showed clinical suspicion of NAC involvement in the form of nipple retraction.
  • All patients underwent central quadrantectomy with NAC resection removing a cylinder of breast tissue reaching down to the pectoral muscle together with axillary dissection.
  • All patients received adjuvant radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy or hormonal therapy.
  • RESULTS: Fourteen patients showed pathological evidence of nipple infiltration (60.8%).
  • The procedure lasted a mean time of 195+/-12.7 minutes and blood loss was estimated at a mean of 225+/-64.8 mL.
  • The procedure did not delay the start of adjuvant treatment nor did it hamper clinical and mammographic follow-up.
  • Central quadrantectomy with repair by a skin-glandular flap is a relatively simple procedure that yields very satisfactory cosmetic results with minimal complications and it may be considered as one of the noteworthy therapeutic options for patients with central breast tumors.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Breast Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We report here a rare form of invasive ductal carcinoma composed of a mass protruding from the tip of the nipple in a 43-year-old woman with hyperprolactinemia.
  • She presented with a mass on the left nipple that had been growing for 6 months.
  • Morphologically, the mass resembled adenoma of the nipple.
  • Histopathologically, the tumor of the nipple was invasive ductal carcinoma, which had extended intraductally from another invasive ductal carcinoma in the subareolar region, and had infiltrated the epidermis of the nipple (Paget's disease).
  • The patient was treated with bromocriptine mesilate, in addition to adjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer, and the plasma prolactin level has since normalized.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Paget's disease of the breast: the experience of the European Institute of Oncology and review of the literature.
  • BACKGROUND: Paget's disease of the breast is an uncommon presentation of breast malignancy, accounting for 1-3% of all the breast tumors and presents in different histopathologic patterns: in association with an underlying invasive or non invasive carcinoma, or without any underlying neoplasia.
  • In the literature, different methods are used for the treatment.
  • Mastectomy with or without axillary dissection has been considered as the standard treatment procedure for many years.
  • Several studies have already shown that breast conservation with radiation therapy is an oncologically safe option.
  • Regarding the axillary approach, several studies have documented the presence of positive sentinel lymph node even in Paget's disease alone.
  • The objective of this study was to retrospectively analyze outcome of patients affected by Paget's breast disease and to define our institutional experience.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between May 1996 and February 2003, 114 patients with confirmed Paget's disease of the breast were retrieved and underwent surgery at the European Institute of Oncology of Milan, Italy.
  • The median age of the patients was 54 years at the time of the diagnosis.
  • In our study, the histopathological examination of the operated specimen revealed one hundred seven patients with Paget's disease associated with an underlying invasive or non invasive carcinoma, and seven patients without underlying carcinoma.
  • Patients underwent either conservative breast surgery or mastectomy, with or without sentinel lymph node biopsy and/or axillary surgery.
  • Each patient was evaluated after surgery at a multidisciplinary meeting to selecting systemic therapy.
  • RESULTS: Seven patients had "pure" Paget's disease of the breast and one hundred seven had the disease associated with an underlying carcinoma.
  • As surgical techniques 71 mastectomies and 43 breast conserving surgeries have been performed.
  • Adjuvant systemic therapies were based on the final tumor, node and metastasis stage: thirty patients received adjuvant chemotherapy alone, fourteen received endocrine treatment alone, twenty-six patients were evaluated to receive both chemo and endocrine therapy.
  • Five patients developed local recurrence, one had regional recurrence, another two had loco-regional recurrences and fourteen had distant metastasis as a first event.
  • Breast conserving surgery combined with breast irradiation for patients with invasive and non invasive breast carcinoma has become the treatment of first choice.
  • All surgical conservative approaches should include the complete nipple-areolar complex and margins of resected specimen free of tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Metastatic eccrine porocarcinoma: response to docetaxel (Taxotere) chemotherapy.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: A case of eccrine porocarcinoma in a female renal transplant patient aged 45 years is described with a review of pertinent literature.
  • In places large and small cells merged and focally the former component infiltrated the epidermis in a manner akin to Paget's disease of the breast.
  • The majority of the tumour was high grade; using the modified Bloom and Richardson grading system, usually applied to mammary ductal carcinomas, the tumour graded as 3.
  • Metastatic disease developed nine months following primary surgical treatment.
  • The metastatic eccrine porocarcinoma was resistant to epirubicin but responded to docetaxel chemotherapy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: There are no data to support the use of adjuvant therapy in the management of eccrine porocarcinoma.
  • The use of the modified Bloom and Richardson grading system may define cases at high risk of relapse in which adjuvant therapy might be considered.
  • We report the first use of docetaxel in the management of this disease.
  • The treatment was well tolerated and resulted in marked symptomatic and radiological responses.
  • Treatment with docetaxel should be considered in future cases of this rare tumour.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Paget's disease of the nipple-areola complex as seen in Benin City, Nigeria.
  • Out of a total of 240 patients who were managed at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, Nigeria, for breast cancer over a ten year period (January 1995-December 2004, 8 (3.3%) were found to have Paget's disease of the nipple-areolar complex.
  • The left breast was more affected than the right.
  • They all presented with itching, excoriation and ulceration of the nipple and diagnosis was by wedge biopsy of the nipple in early cases and by incisional biopsy in late cases.
  • Most presented with advanced disease.
  • They all had chemotherapy and tamoxifen.
  • Paget's disease, though rare, requires a high index of suspicion for proper diagnosis.

  • [Title] Paget's disease of the nipple.
  • Paget's disease of the nipple is an unusual epidermal presentation of underlying breast cancer.
  • It presents as eczematous change or erythematous ulceration, but may also be an incidental histological finding in a mastectomy specimen.
  • Routine clinical and mammographic assessment may significantly underestimate the extent of disease, but MRI may increase the sensitivity in detecting occult malignancy.
  • Mastectomy maximizes local control; however, selected cases can be treated by nipple conisation with radiotherapy.
  • Almost all invasive cases overexpress human EGF receptor-2 and, therefore, are likely to benefit from adjuvant chemotherapy and herceptin.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Treatment of mammary and extramammary Paget's skin disease with topical imiquimod.
  • BACKGROUND: Paget's disease is an uncommon epidermal cancer, affecting all skin regions wherever apocrine glands are present.
  • It is divided into extramammary (EMPD) and mammary Paget's disease (MPD).
  • The diagnosis is confirmed by skin biopsy and the treatment depends on characteristics of the underlying cancer.
  • Surgery is the first-line treatment.
  • Imiquimod, a topical immunomodulator, approved its efficiency in several skin neoplasms and has been shown as a safe treatment for EMPD.
  • However, it has never been reported for the treatment of MPD.
  • CONCLUSION: This non-surgical method may be considered as a primary treatment when Paget's disease is not associated with an underlying malignancy.
  • The good prognosis with a long-term survival, the anatomic localization and the poor general condition of elderly people may favor imiquimod as an alternative treatment.

  • [Title] Therapy insight: the risks and benefits of bisphosphonates for the treatment of tumor-induced bone disease.
  • Bisphosphonates are a valuable class of drugs with potent anti-resorptive actions that make them ideal for skeletal protection in osteoporosis, cancer bone metastasis, multiple myeloma, and Paget's disease of bone.
  • It has become apparent, however, that these drugs also have the potential to cause a number of adverse effects.
  • We review the range of adverse reactions to bisphosphonate therapy with a particular emphasis on the recently identified association between long-term bisphosphonate treatment and osteonecrosis of the jaw.
  • This is a potentially serious side effect seen mostly in patients with multiple myeloma or breast cancer bone metastases who receive intravenous bisphosphonate treatment.

  • [Title] Extramammary Paget's disease of the perianal region.
  • OBJECTIVE: Perianal Paget's disease (PPD) is a rare entity.
  • The standard treatment for either in situ or invasive extra mammary Paget's disease (EMPD) is surgical excision.
  • The aim of this article is to review our experience with PPD and question the currently preferred treatment approaches in light of its histopathology and therapeutic outcome.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: A chart review of our patients with PPD from 1996 to 2002 was carried out to determine their outcome after treatment.
  • RESULTS: Five patients with in situ disease (four females, median age 68 years) were diagnosed as having PPD.
  • A complete surgical excision was attempted in 4 patients and the fifth was treated by photodynamic therapy.
  • At present, all patients are alive, two are free of disease, one has persistent disease and two have local recurrence.
  • CONCLUSION: Considering the significant rate of recurrence even after wide local excision, the extent of surgery needed and the good prognosis with long-term survival, we question whether nonsurgical modalities should be considered in place of surgery as primary treatment for noninvasive PPD, with radical surgery being reserved for failures or invasive disease.

  • [Title] [Diagnosis and treatment of extramammary Paget's disease].
  • Extramammary Paget's disease is a malignant tumor with the characteristic bright large atypical cells called Paget's cells, which proliferate within an intraepidermal lesion outside the breast.
  • Extramammary Paget's disease is commonly an intraepidermal neoplasm.
  • Surgery with wide local excision is the first choice of treatment, and the prognosis is comparatively favorable in the early stages.
  • However, when tumor cells infiltrate into the dermis and advance to Paget's carcinoma, it is referred to as adenocarcinoma of the skin and has a poor prognosis.
  • We report an effective treatment of extramammary Paget's disease in advanced stages' including our case.
  • No standard treatment with a significant effect has yet been established.
  • There are few reports of cases responsive to chemotherapy, and treatment in advanced stages is extremely difficult at present.

  • [Title] HER-2/neu expression in Paget disease of the vulva and the female breast.
  • OBJECTIVES: Paget disease of the vulva is a rare lesion that accounts for <1% of vulva neoplasms.
  • A 12% prevalence of invasive Paget carcinoma and a 4% prevalence of associated adenocarcinomas are described.
  • Furthermore, a high recurrence rate of 30% after surgical therapy is observed.
  • This study aims to search for therapeutic strategies for recurrent Paget disease, which are less mutilating and less aggressive than reexcision, x-ray therapy, or chemotherapy.
  • FDA for the treatment of patients with HER-2/neu-positive metastatic breast carcinomas.
  • The results of recent studies indicate that HER-2/neu oncoprotein may play a role in the pathogenesis of extramammary Paget disease.
  • METHODS: Using HercepTest, we analyzed HER-2/neu overexpression in seven noninvasive Paget lesions, two invasive lesions, and one Paget disease of the vulva with underlying adenocarcinoma.
  • In addition, we investigated five mammary Paget diseases.
  • RESULTS: Overexpression of HER-2/neu oncoprotein labeling exclusively the membranes of Paget cells was demonstrated in 8 out of 10 cases.
  • Overexpression of HER-2/neu was demonstrated in all five cases of mammary Paget disease.
  • CONCLUSION: Using HercepTest as a standardized detection system, overexpression of HER-2/neu can be demonstrated in a majority of both noninvasive and invasive Paget disease of the vulva.
  • The use of Trastuzumab should be considered for the treatment of patients with recurrent Paget disease of the vulva with overexpression of HER-2/neu.

  • [Title] Clinical and histopathologic observations of the action of imiquimod in an epithelioid hemangioendothelioma and Paget's mammary disease.
  • An epithelioid hemangioendothelioma and Paget's disease of the breast were treated with topical imiquimod 5% cream with very impressive results.
  • In this article, in addition to describing the treatment approach, the findings in biopsy specimens of the epithelioid hemangioendothelioma and the Paget's disease before, during, and after therapy will be described.
  • The histologic findings show ample evidence that there is both a lymphocytic T helper 1-like and T helper 2-like response from imiquimod.
  • We considered it important to describe these findings because of their possible use in developing strategies for the application of imiquimod in the treatment of other tumors in human beings.

  • [Title] Evaluation of photodynamic therapy of skin cancers with partial differential alpha-aminolevulinic acid.
  • OBJECTIVE: To use partial differential -aminolevulinic acid induced photodynamic therapy (ALA-PDT) increasingly in treating skin cancers and other diseases in many countries and to explore the efficacy of ALA-PDT for skin cancers in China.
  • METHODS: Eighty-eight patients, including 34 cases of basal cell carcinoma (BCC), 32 cases of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), two cases of basal-squamous cell carcinoma (BSCC), one case of verrucuous carcinoma, nine cases of Bowen disease, two cases Paget disease of the nipple and eight cases of extramammary Paget disease, were treated by the partial differential alpha-aminolevulinic acid induced photodynamic therapy first in China from 1997 to 2000.
  • RESULTS: All BCC, including 11 cases of superficial lesions and 29 solid lesions, achieved complete reaction (CR) by 1-4 times of the ALA-PDT.
  • Except one patient with adenoid SCC (grade III), all SCC (grade I and grade II) patients achieved complete remission by 3-6 times of ALA-PDT.
  • All Bowen diseases achieved complete reaction by 1-4 times.
  • Although for Paget diseases it could not cure the disease simply by ALA-PDT, it could control the symptoms.
  • The recurrence rates were 11% (4/34) for BCC, and 22% (7/32) for SCC by following up 1-3 years after the therapy.
  • The continuous therapy is still effective.
  • CONCLUSIONS: ALA-PDT is an effective, non-traumatic treatment for patients with BCC, SCC, Bowen and Paget diseases.
  • It is especially suitable for older and weaker patients or those who are not tolerable to other therapies.
  • It is a new alternative modality for skin cancer therapies.
