Clustered microcalcification following breast implant removal mimicking malignancy

Abstract

On mammography, clustered microcalcification can be an early and sensitive sign of malignancy, although it is also commonly seen in benign alterations of the breast. We report on a 52-year-old woman with mammographically suspicious granular calcification as a late result of a short-term silicone augmentation. Plain film, surgical, and histopathological features are demonstrated.
