Breast carcinoma en Cuirasse--case report.

Oliveira GM, Zachetti DB, Barros HR, Tiengo A, Romiti N - An Bras Dermatol (2013 Jul-Aug)

Bottom Line: Cutaneous metastasis is a phenomenon that results from a tumor spreading via lymphatic or vascular embolization, direct implant during surgery or skin involvement by contiguity.We report the case of a female patient, 78 years old, with papular, scaly and confluent lesions in the right breast for one year, progressing to edema and skin infiltration, reduction of breast volume and plaque en cuirasse, and similar lesions in the contralateral breast and abdomen for four months.The pathological diagnosis was invasive ductal breast carcinoma with Paget-like foci, epidermal skin metastases and lymphatic embolization.

ABSTRACT
Cutaneous metastasis is a phenomenon that results from a tumor spreading via lymphatic or vascular embolization, direct implant during surgery or skin involvement by contiguity. The primary malignant tumor that most commonly metastasizes to the skin in women is breast cancer, which can be manifested through papulonodular lesions, erysipeloid or sclerodermiform infiltration, en cuirasse. We report the case of a female patient, 78 years old, with papular, scaly and confluent lesions in the right breast for one year, progressing to edema and skin infiltration, reduction of breast volume and plaque en cuirasse, and similar lesions in the contralateral breast and abdomen for four months. The pathological diagnosis was invasive ductal breast carcinoma with Paget-like foci, epidermal skin metastases and lymphatic embolization.

f05: Tumor lymphatic embolization

Mentions: Histological examination showed epidermis infiltration with pagetoid neoplastic cells,some of them with clear cytoplasm and tumor emboli in lymphatic vessels (Figures 3,4 and5). The diagnosis was invasive ductal breastcarcinoma with Paget-like foci, cutaneous metastases and lymphatic embolization.
