Description

One of the features which is unique to breast cancers originating from the major ducts (DAB) is Paget’s disease of the breast. It was first described by the British pathologist, James Paget, in 1874. He described 14 cases of breast cancer associated with an eczema-like skin change of the nipple and areola. Almost 1% of all breast cancers present with Paget’s disease of the nipple, and the diagnosis is confirmed by histologically demonstrating the Paget cells of the affected epidermis. The underlying breast cancer can be best demonstrated by combining all breast imaging methods. Of these, breast MRI is the most sensitive, showing the presence and true extent of the underlying DAB, often before calcifications can be detected on the mammogram.
