Abstract

ROSMANINHO, Aristóteles; VELHO, Glória; CAETANO, Mónica  and  SELORES, Manuela. Breast cancer: 2 case reports. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2012, vol.87, n.1, pp. 123-126. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962012000100016.

Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed life-threatening cancer in women and the leading cause of cancer death among them worldwide. It includes a heterogeneous collection of diseases with various histologically defined subsets, clinical presentations, responses to treatment and outcomes. We describe 2 cases of female patients with ductal breast carcinoma. Dermatologists may have an important role in diagnosing such diseases.

Keywords : Breast neoplasms; Carcinoma, ductal, breast; Cancer; Medical oncology; Neoplasms.
