We describe our management of two patients who had massive breast enlargement with necrosis in the first trimester. First, a therapeutic abortion was done to stop the breast growth, then we skin grafted the large ulcerated areas on the breasts, and finally we did a simple mastectomy with silicone gel implants for reconstruction. The latter procedure was to prevent almost certain recurrence of the problem during any succeeding pregnancy.
