Abstract

We report a case of synchronous bilateral breast cancer with Paget's disease and invasive ductal carcinoma. A 60-year-old Japanese woman presented with an 8-month history of discharge from the left nipple with eczema and itching. Mammography showed grouped fine calcification in the right breast, which was highly suggestive of right breast carcinoma with an intraductal component. Ultrasonography did not reveal any mass lesions in the bilateral breasts, and computed tomography and bone scintigraphy showed no site of distant metastasis. We performed a modified radical mastectomy for Paget's disease in the left breast and breast-conserving surgery for ductal carcinoma in the right breast. The histological diagnosis was Paget's disease in the left breast and invasive ductal carcinoma with a predominant intraductal component in the right breast. There was no metastasis in any of the 24 left axillary lymph nodes resected. We also gave her postoperative adjuvant chemoendocrine therapy, comprised of tamoxifen (20 mg) and UFT (uracil/tegafur) (400 mg)daily. The patient has been disease-free for 4 years since her operation.
