Author: Ashwath Narayan Ramji
Inflammatory breast carcinoma is a rare and highly aggressive malignancy. Clinically, the presentation is rapid and macroscopic appearance may be mistaken for a benign inflammatory lesion, showing characteristic pathological signs of inflammation, and prominent peau d’orange appearance. The aggressiveness of the condition automatically grants a T4 status in the AJCC TNM staging system. Here we report a case of 45-year-old female with inflammatory carcinoma of the right breast and briefly discuss relevant literature.
