Abstract

Paget's disease of the breast is a rare form of breast cancer and represents only 1% to 4% of all breast cancers. It is characterized by the presence of Paget's cells in the epithelium tissue (in epidermis) and it manifests as a lesion of the nipple. In most cases, Paget's disease is associated with an underlying breast malignancy. Mastectomy has been considered the treatment of choice, but breast conservation is also being explored, in properly selected patients, depending on the underlying malignancy. We report a case of Paget's disease occurring in the contralateral breast 11 years after mastectomy for invasive ductal carcinoma but with no underlying breast malignancy.

Abstract in Croatian

POJAVA PAGETOVE BOLESTI U KONTRALATERALNOJ DOJCI 11 GODINA NAKON MASTEKTOMIJE ZBOG DUKTALNOG INVAZIVNOG KARCINOMA ----- Pagetova bolest dojke je rijedak oblik karcinoma dojke koji predstavlja 1–4% svih zloćudnih tumora dojke. Karakterizirana je prisutnošću Pagetovih stanica u epidermisu i predstavlja leziju bradavice. U većini je slučajeva Pagetova bolest povezana sa pridruženim podležećim karcinomom dojke. Mastektomija se smatra liječenjem izbora, ali se poštedni kirurški zahvat također primjenjuje u pravilno izabranih bolesnica, ovisno o podležećoj malignosti. Prikazujemo slučaj pojave Pagetove bolesti u kontralateralnoj dojci, bez pridruženog maligniteta dojke, 11 godina nakon mastektomije zbog duktalnog invazivnog karcinoma.
