Primary breast lymphoma: the role of mastectomy and the importance of lymph node status

Annals of Surgery
William JenningsThomas A Broughan


To construct and analyze a database comprised of all reported cases of primary breast lymphoma (PBL) that include treatment and follow-up information published during the last 3 decades. PBL accounts for 0.4% of breast malignancies and 2% of extranodal lymphomas. Surgical therapy has varied from biopsy to radical mastectomy. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy have been used as adjuvant or primary therapy. A standard consensus treatment of PBL is not available. We reviewed all published PBL reports from June 1972 to March 2005. A database was compiled by abstracting individual patient information, limiting our study to those reports that contained specific treatment and outcome data. Patient demographics such as survival, recurrence, and time to follow-up were recorded, in addition to surgical, radiation, and/or chemotherapy treatment(s). We found 465 acceptable patients reported in 92 publications. Age range was 17 to 95 years (mean, 54 years). Mean tumor size was 3.5 cm. Diffuse large cell (B) lymphoma was the most common histologic diagnosis (53%). Disease-free survival was 44.5% overall. Follow-up ranged from one to 288 months (mean, 48 months). Treatment by mastectomy offered no survival benefit or protection from recurrenc...Continue Reading
