  • There are only a few published reports describing the pathology of regional lymph nodes from patients with silicone breast implants. [...] Key Method In this study, biopsies of regional lymph nodes from 96 patients with breast implants were studied using conventional histology as well as laser-Raman microprobe spectroscopy and Fourier transform infrared microspectroscopy. Lymph nodes from 12 patients without implants served as negative controls. Foamy macrophages, ranging from rare scattered cells to confluent…Expand Abstract
