Relapsing mastatitis 17 years after the augmentation mammoplasty with PAAG followed by follicular Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma – MRT, US and PET /CT
- Spirdonov, T. Sedloev
A case of a 51-year-old woman with mastitis in her right breast 17 years after Augmentation Mammoplasty with PAAG produced in Ukraine is presented. the MRI and mammary US findings are discussed. Solid areas in the background of the non-structural gel are established, hardly to be distinguished from primary mammary lesions. At a control US examination 6 months after the surgical intervention, an increase in new l.n. in the right axilla is established. The biopsy performed discovered the histological features for follicular non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma grade 2, CD 20 (+) sex. The links of the lymphoma as a systemic manifestation of the local cytotoxic effect in the C-myc gene expression of the medical polyacrylamide hydrogel is questionable. In all women after Augmentation Mammoplasty with PAAG 6-month follow-ups with US are recommended, completed with MRI if needed and, annual blood tests as well. For equivoqual clinical examinations and imaging studies, proceed to a FNB or Cor biopsy under US control.
