Ultrasound of pediatric breast masses: what to do with lumps and bumps.

Pediatr Radiol 2015 Oct 12;45(11):1584-99; quiz 1581-3. Epub 2015 Jul 12.

Department of Radiology, University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, WA, USA.

The approach to breast masses in children differs from that in adults in many ways, including the differential diagnostic considerations, imaging algorithm and appropriateness of biopsy as a means of further characterization. Most pediatric breast masses are benign, either related to breast development or benign neoplastic processes. Biopsy is rarely needed and can damage the developing breast; thus radiologists must be familiar with the imaging appearance of common entities so that biopsies are judiciously recommended.

Complex cystic breast masses in ultrasound examination.

Diagn Interv Imaging 2014 Feb 13;95(2):169-79. Epub 2014 Jan 13.

Medical Imaging Department, Institut Curie, 26, rue d'Ulm, 75005 Paris, France.

Complex cystic masses are defined as lesions composed of anechoic (cystic) and echogenic (solid) components, unlike complicated cysts, the echogenic fluid content of which imitates a solid lesion. Complex masses are classified as ACR4 and require histological verification by percutaneous biopsy and/or surgical ablation. The etiology is diverse, and can be benign or high risk (an abscess, hematoma, fat necrosis, fibrocystic mastopathy, a phyllodes tumor, papilloma) as much as malignant (papillary cancer, necrotic cancer, a ductal carcinoma in situ, metastases).

Unit of Breast Imaging, Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, Avda Sant Antoni Maria Claret 167, 08025 Barcelona, Spain.

During pregnancy and lactation, the breast can be affected by a variety of specific and unique disorders, including benign disorders closely related to physiologic changes, inflammatory and infectious diseases, juvenile papillomatosis, and benign and malignant tumors. Patients with pregnancy-associated breast carcinoma tend to have more advanced neoplasms at diagnosis and a poorer prognosis due to delayed diagnosis and a more aggressive biologic pattern. Pregnancy-related Burkitt lymphoma characteristically manifests with bilateral and diffuse involvement of the breasts. Read More

Medizinisches Zentrum für Frauenheilkunde und Geburtshilfe, Philipps-Universität Marburg, Pilgrimstein 3, 35033 Marburg, Germany.

Objective: The growing awareness of female breast cancer has led to increased sensitivity toward pathologic breast conditions in children and adolescents. Thus, approximately 15% of patients in child and adolescent gynecology are referred for the first time because of conspicuous features of the breast such as pain, palpable masses, and other findings on visual inspection. The aim of this study was to analyze the underlying diagnoses and diseases and determine the status of breast sonography in the diagnostic process. Read More

NTP Studies of Magnetic Field Promotion (DMBA Initiation) in Female Sprague-Dawley Rats (Whole-body Exposure/Gavage Studies).

Authors:

Natl Toxicol Program Tech Rep Ser 1999 Aug;489:1-148

Electric and magnetic fields are associated with the production, transmission, and use of electricity; thus, the potential for human exposure is high. These elec-tric and magnetic fields are predominantly of low fre-quency (60 Hz in the United States and 50 Hz in Europe) and generally of low intensity. Because some epidemiology studies and initiation/promotion studies in rats have suggested a potential for increased breast cancer rates with increasing magnetic field exposure, the ability of 50- and 60-Hz magnetic fields to pro-mote mammary gland tumors initiated by the administration of 7,12-dimethylbenz(a)anthracene (DMBA) was examined in female Sprague-Dawley rats in 13- and 26-week whole-body exposure studies.

99mTc sestamibi scintimammography in the diagnosis of palpable breast masses.

Nucl Med Commun 2003 Feb;24(2):141-4

Ocean Road Cancer Institute, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of 99mTc sestamibi scintimammography in a region with a low incidence of breast cancer (East, central and West Africa) and to verify the clinical usefulness of this technique in identifying benign breast diseases. Thirty-eight women (age range 22-38 years) with palpable breast masses (n =38) and inconclusive mammograms were included. Prone scintimammography was performed 10 min and 60-90 min in all patients after injection using an isotime acquisition of 10 min. Read More

p53 mutations as tumor markers in fine needle aspirates of palpable breast masses.

Acta Cytol 2002 Sep-Oct;46(5):841-7

Department of Pathology-LH219, Yale University School of Medicine, P.O. Box 208023, New Haven, Connecticut 06520-8023, USA.

Objective: Mutations in p53 exons 5-8 are found in 40-50% of breast carcinomas. We performed a retrospective analysis of p53 mutations in fluid-based, archival fine needle aspirates (FNAs) of breast masses to determine their potential diagnostic utility as breast tumor cell markers.

Study Design: Residual, fluid-based, archival FNAs of 27 breast masses were retrospectively evaluated by polymerase chain reaction (PCR), single-strand conformational polymorphism analysis (SSCP) and sequencing for p53 exons 5-8. Read More

Mammary tuberculosis: percutaneous treatment of a mammary tuberculous abscess.

Eur Radiol 2000 ;10(3):531-3

Servicio de Radiología, Hospital Virgen de la Salud, Complejo Hospitalario de Toledo, Spain.

It is currently very rare to find mammary involvement in cases of tuberculosis, in either primary or secondary form. Diagnosis is classically clinical and microbiological, and the basic techniques used in imaging diagnosis are mammography and ultrasound. Computed tomography may define the involvement of the thoracic wall in those cases which present as mammary masses adhering to deep levels, and is also able to evaluate accompanying pulmonary disease, if it is present.
