Abstract

Silicon granuloma is one of the benign complications of breast implant failure but this is rarely reported. We report a 66-year-old lady presented to respiratory department with history of weight loss and a chest x-ray was highly suggestive of a lung malignancy. Further investigation including CT thorax and breast ultrasound suggested siliconoma that was later on confirmed on tissue biopsy.
