Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In the haemorrhage discharging breast of an elder woman no tumor mass could be detected by mammography. An obstruction in a duct without tumor mass was detected by ductography. Fine needle aspiration biopsy was performed in the area close to and behind the obstruction. The cytopathological diagnosis was 'Papilloma seu carcinoma papillare'. Surprisingly, the same duct filled completely during ductography after biopsy. After ultrasound-guided wire localization, the success of surgical treatment was confirmed by histology.
