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
A Case of Silicone and Sarcoid Granulomas in a Patient with “Highly Cohesive” Silicone Breast Implants: A Histopathologic and Laser Raman Microprobe Analysis
TLDR
This is the first report where chemical spectroscopic mapping has been used to establish and identify the coexistence of Schaumann bodies, consisting of calcium oxalate and calcium phosphate minerals, together with silicone implant material.
Silicone Lymphadenopathy After Breast Augmentation: Case Reports, Review of the Literature, and Current Thoughts
TLDR
Current breast implant technology has minimized the release of silicone gel due to rupture or bleeding of silicone and its migration into the surrounding tissues, thus reducing the rate of silicone lymphadenopathy in the last 10 years.
Discrimination between benign, primary and secondary malignancies in lymph nodes from the head and neck utilising Raman spectroscopy and multivariate analysis.
TLDR
Raman spectroscopy and chemometric techniques can be successfully utilised in combination for discriminating between different cancerous conditions of lymph nodes from the head and neck.
Flow Cytometric Analysis of Peripheral Blood Lymphocyte Subsets in Patients with Silicone Breast Implants
TLDR
No statistically significant difference in the distribution of peripheral blood lymphocytes could be detected in patients with silicone breast implants in comparison with other Caucasian adults, and there was no evidence of systemic proinflammatory effects of silicone breast implant effects.
Clinicopathologic Features and Prognostic Impact of Lymph Node Involvement in Patients With Breast Implant-associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma
TLDR
It is concluded that BI-ALCL beyond capsule is associated with a higher risk of LNI, and involvement of lymph nodes was associated with decreased overall survival.
Raman spectroscopy as a tool for the identification and differentiation of neoplasias contained within lymph nodes of the head and neck
The use of Raman spectroscopy in the detection and classification of malignancy within lymph nodes of the head and neck has been evaluated. Currently histopathology is considered the diagnostic gold
Significance of internal mammary lymph nodes in patients after mastectomy with tissue-expander reconstruction: a case-control study.
TLDR
IMNs are common on imaging after mastectomy and tissue-expander placement and may represent reactive nodes, which are stable or decreased in size on subsequent imaging examinations.
Axillary Silicone Laden Lymph Nodes: an Unusual Cause of Lymphadenopathy Case Report
TLDR
A case of silicone laden lymph nodes 13 years after breast augmentation, which resulted in bilateral breast pain and itching for several months and could potentially use its presence to warrant further investigation of other breast implant rupture complications.
Internal mammary lymph node siliconoma in absence of prosthesis rupture: a case series that raises concern for potential risk of overdiagnosis.
TLDR
Siliconoma can occur even without evidence of capsule rupture, challenging the clinicians and leading to a risk of relapse over diagnosis, according to this study.
Siliconomas mimicking cancer.
TLDR
Silicone granulomas can manifest as masses with suspicious morphology and enhancement dynamics on breast MRI or with increased FDG uptake on PET CT, which may help in facilitating a correct diagnosis.

Demonstration of silicon in sites of connective-tissue disease in patients with silicone-gel breast implants.
TLDR
The presence of silicon-containing material within sites of connective-tissue disease supports a role for silicon in the origin or pathogenesis of such conditions in patients with silicone-gel breast implants.
Silicone breast implants and the risk of connective-tissue diseases and symptoms.
TLDR
In a large cohort study, an association between silicone breast implants and connective-tissue diseases, defined according to a variety of standardized criteria, or signs and symptoms of these diseases, was not found.
Monitoring the Axilla in Patients with Silicone Gel Implants
TLDR
Routine evaluation of the axilla is mandatory in all patients with silicone breast implants and axillary masses detected by clinical examination or other means must be biopsied, even in the face of negative screening studies, because breast cancer may be coincidental with a silicone granuloma.
Changes seen in lymph nodes draining the sites of large joint prostheses.
TLDR
It is believed that the histological appearance of the lymph nodes represents a florid foreign body reaction to fragments of polyester or polyethylene derived from the articulating surfaces of the joint prostheses and transported to the regional lymph nodes via the lymphatic circulation.
Determination of silicon in breast and capsular tissue from patients with breast implants performed by inductively coupled plasma emission spectroscopy. Comparison with tissue histology.
TLDR
This manuscript addresses the issues involved in analysis of breast tissue samples for silicon and compares silicon levels with tissue histologic findings and patient morbidity and finds no difference in tissue silicon concentration between patients with or without signs or symptoms of morbidity.
Pathology of silicone leakage from breast implants.
TLDR
The specific pathological locoregional aspects of (leakage from) silicone breast implants are reviewed to discuss the pathology of silicone leakage in other parts of the body.
Clinical findings in symptomatic women with silicone breast implants.
TLDR
Findings suggest that physicians should inform women about the possible benefit of implant removal and believe this series supports a relationship between silicone breast implants and rheumatic disease signs and symptoms.
Silicone gel breast implant rupture, extracapsular silicone, and health status in a population of women.
TLDR
An association between extracapsular silicone from ruptured silicone breast implants and FM is suggested, and women with silicone gel breast implants should be informed of the potential risk of developing fibromyalgia if their breast implants rupture and the silicone gel escapes the fibrous scar capsule.
A profile of symptomatic patients with silicone breast implants: a Sjögrens-like syndrome.
TLDR
A prospective noncontrolled study on women with silicone breast implants revealed the presence of a unique syndrome associated with silicone implants that is characterized by musculoskeletal pain and autoimmune features.
Benign Mechanical Transport of Breast Epithelial Cells to Sentinel Lymph Nodes
TLDR
The hypothesis that pre-SLN biopsy breast massage is a mode of benign mechanical transport of epithelial cells to SLNs is tested and it is found thatEpithelial cells and cell clusters, ≤0.2 mm in size and without features of established metastases, occurred more frequently in the SLNs of patients who underwent pre- SLN bi autopsy breast massage.
