Mammary Paget Disease
An advanced case of Paget disease (PD) of the breast in an elderly female - close-up of the previous image. The lesion measured 5 cm in diameter and consisted of scaly, itchy, crusting, ulcerated lesion with total destruction of the nipple. The lesion itself was indurated but there was no underlying breast mass and axillary lymph nodes were not palpable. The mastectomy specimen (see slide 5) showed a subareolar nodule with DCIS. No invasive tumor was found.
