Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Breast reconstruction is performed with increasing frequency and has become important in the treatment of mastectomy patients.

METHODS:

The development of recurrent carcinoma after a mastectomy and transverse rectus abdominus myocutaneous (TRAM) flap procedure is described.

RESULTS:

The lesion was nonpalpable and was detected by mammography.

CONCLUSION:

This case raises questions about the practice of not performing postreconstruction mammography for detection of local recurrence after mastectomy.
