abstract

  • A 90-year-old woman who underwent a left modified radical mastectomy 40 years ago with no further adjuvant treatment presented with a left chest wall mass at the suture line. A biopsy of the mass confirmed that it was invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast. After a negative metastatic work-up, the patient underwent a local resection of the chest wall mass with clear margins. We present here the longest documented delayed recurrence after modified radical mastectomy reported in the literature.
