A continuous series of 649 patients, treated by modified radical mastectomy for primary breast carcinoma, is analyzed after a median follow-up of 92 months. 'True isolated' locoregional recurrences (LR), defined as LR not preceded or followed by distant metastases within 6 weeks, appeared with a cumulative actuarial incidence rate of 6%, 14% and 19% after 1, 5 and 7 years respectively, whereas the respective figures for distant metastases (M1) were 10%, 37% and 48%.
