From: Synchronous ipsilateral carcinoma of the accessory mammary gland and primary lymphoma of the breast with subsequent rectal carcinoma: report of a case

4 [13] 53/F MALT lymphoma Left IDC 25/25 PBL Ipsilateral, colliding with each other -
5 [14] 57/F MALT lymphoma Right IDC + DCIS Unknown (palpable)/8 right + 12 left PBL Ipsilateral, both in the same quadrant -

  1. *Synchronous triple tumors, with bilateral Brenner tumors of the ovary. †Mouse mammary tumor virus sequences were identified. ‡The carcinoma occurred from the accessory mammary gland and posterior rectal cancer was diagnosed. DCIS, ductal carcinoma in situ; DLBCL, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma; F, female; IDC, invasive ductal carcinoma; ILC, invasive lobular carcinoma; MALT, mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue; NHL, non-Hodgkin lymphoma; PBL, primary breast lymphoma.
