Abstract

PURPOSE: Mondor's disease is commonly known as a benign breast condition after augmentation mammaplasty, and some authors have also reported its association with other breast surgeries such as reduction mammaplasty or axillary lymph node biopsy. Here we report two cases of Mondor's disease after immediate breast reconstruction with silicone implant.
METHODS
Two women, 51-year-old and 36-year-old, underwent immediate breast reconstruction with silicone implants after nipple-areolar skin-sparing mastectomy.
RESULTS
Subcutaneous cord-like firm lesion appeared on upper abdomen, axillary area following surgery. The lesion was painless and spontaneously subsided with no medications.
CONCLUSION
To our knowledge, this is the first report of Mondor's disease developed after immediate breast reconstruction using silicone implant.
