Since the scandal of the poly-implant protheses (PIP) breast implants, all patients with PIP are advised to have their implants removed. With approximately 400,000 PIP implants sold worldwide breast, surgeons will be confronted with these patients. Histologic examination in the reported case showed silicone infiltration into fatty tissue and breast tissue without signs of malignancy. A general histologic analysis for the rare event of an anaplastic large T cell lymphoma is not advised. The malignant potential of PIP implants currently is uncertain, and further investigation is required.
