PMID:  10404135     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case report is presented of a woman with recurrent DCIS occurring several years following a total mastectomy, the diagnosis of which was aided by a subpectoral saline implant. A discussion of factors associated with recurrence and a review of the literature is provided. A role for selective use of mammography in screening postmastectomy reconstructed breasts in patients at high risk for recurrence is suggested.
