Abstract

Early reports demonstrated the diagnostic advantage of large-core (14-gauge) biopsy over fine-needle aspiration biopsy of nonpalpable lesions of the breast without apparent significant increase in morbidity. A case of malignant seeding of the needle track after a large-core biopsy of a mucinous carcinoma of the breast is documented. The potential for increased risk of tract seeding of malignancy must be considered.
