Myoid hamartomas of the breast are extremely rare breast lesions, with a poorly understood pathogenesis. We describe the case of a 38-year-old premenopausal woman who presenting with a mass in the left breast. Mammography revealed an oval mass that was partly indistinct, and ultrasonography showed a hypoechoic mass with a slightly irregular margin.(More)
BACKGROUND Docetaxel plus cyclophosphamide (TC) has recently been established as a standard adjuvant chemotherapy regimen for HER2-negative (HER2-) operable breast cancer. However, the efficacy and tolerability of TC as neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) remain unclear. We, therefore, conducted a prospective study to evaluate the efficacy of TC NAC in HER2-(More)
A 63-year-old woman was suffering from HER2-positive and hormone receptor-negative breast cancer with bone metastasis. She received 16 cycles of paclitaxel(PTX 80mg/m2)plus trastuzumab(TRA 2mg/kg)on a 7-day cycle, and zoledronic acid(ZOL 4mg/body every 28 days), resulting in a near clinical complete response(cCR). Two years later, the patient complained of(More)
Nab-paclitaxel was administered to 9 patients with refractory advanced or recurrent breast cancer from 1 to 8 times(median 4)triweekly. The median cumulative dose was 775mg/m2(range 260-2, 000), and the median delivered dose intensity was 66. 7mg/m2/week(range 58. 3-86. 7). The response to treatment was CR in one patient, PR in 2 patients, SD in one(More)
We experienced a case of locally advanced breast cancer achieving a significant improvement by using a combination of docetaxel(DOC), cyclophosphamide(CPA)and trastuzumab as a primary systemic therapy.The patient was a 54-year-old woman suffering from a right breast mass, who was referred to our hospital and diagnosed with HER2-positive breast cancer with(More)
141 Background: Recently, docetaxel plus cyclophosphamide (TC) has been established as a standard regimen for adjuvant chemotherapy in HER2- operable breast cancer. However, the efficacy and tolerability of TC as neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) remains unclear. We performed a prospective study of TC NAC in HER2- primary breast cancer. METHODS Eligible(More)
BACKGROUND The standard primary systemic therapy for human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-positive (HER2+) breast cancer is anthracyclines and/or taxanes combined with trastuzumab, which demonstrates a high pathological complete response (pCR). A pCR is a predictive marker of prognosis. However, results slightly differ, depending on the hormone receptor(More)
A 48-year-old woman was diagnosed with metastatic breast carcinoma and multiple bone metastases as well as a brain metastasis in 2004. Multiple bone metastases and brain metastases were also diagnosed in 2005, 2006, and 2010, but she remained stable with the use of chemotherapy and hormonal therapy for about 8 years. In 2013, severe anemia occurred, and the(More)
