[Forum on tissue expansion. Breast reconstruction by expansion in a young woman with sequelae of thoracic amniotic disease. Apropos of a case].

Abstract

Amniotic disease or congenital skin sulci disease is a clinical entity covering a broad spectrum of malformations, usually involving the limbs, skull and face. This malformation is exceptional in the thorax. The authors report the case of a 22 year old woman with sequelae of thoracic amniotic disease, consisting of unilateral mammary aplasia, atrophy of the pectoralis major and latissimus dorsi muscles and deformity of the homolateral thoracic skeleton. They describe the breast reconstruction performed by tissue expansion in this patient.
