Breast MRI as a Problem Solving Tool in Paget’s Disease of the Nipple

Gudrun Peters, Mary Self, Anne Lynch, Lynne Brothers

Abstract


Paget’s disease of the nipple is a rare breast malignancy. It is usually, but not always, associated with an underlying ductal carcinoma in situ or invasive ductal carcinoma. Conventional breast imaging studies often fail to detect underlying breast malignancy when present. The following article will discuss the role of breast MRI as a problem solving tool in Paget’s disease of the nipple-areolar complex in patients with no abnormality on clinical examination and normal mammography.
