Follow-up of the 20 patients (21 biopsies) who had unremarkable/normal breast tissue on MRI-guided biopsy revealed the following: 11 patients had resolution of the initial lesion
on follow-up MRI, 1 patient had a prophylactic mastectomy with concordant benign pathology at the 2 MRI biopsy sites, 4 women underwent rebiopsy that yielded benign breast tissue or fibrocystic changes, 3 women were lost to follow-up, and 1 had a follow-up ultrasound guided biopsy that revealed focal lobular carcinoma in situ in a background of columnar cell change.
The initial lesion
sizes in these patients were smaller than 1 cm in six, 1-2 cm in 11 and 2-3 cm in one.
The initial lesion
, Herald patch, is followed several days to weeks later by the appearance of numerous similar-appearing smaller lesions, located along the lines of cleavage of the trunk (Christmas tree pattern).
In our patient the psoriatic lesions appeared on the spots and scars of varicella within one month of the initial lesion
Another finding of our study is the effect of initial lesion
size on prognosis.
It may present as either an initial lesion
or late complication during the treatment of lung cancer.
In clinically typical cases the disease appears with the initial lesion
called herald patch.
From all the data collected, some are highly suggestive, such as: low hematocrit value in 23-48 hours after the initial lesion
due to intra-alveolar microhemorrhages and thrombocytopenia as well as modified clotting tests.
Pemphigus vulgaris: incidence in Jews of different ethnic groups, according to age, sex, and initial lesion
Pityriasis rosea is generally self-limiting--without any systemic complications--and resolves within 2 to 8 weeks of the appearance of the initial lesion
Having an initial lesion
larger than 5 cm was a significant predictor of hospitalization, whereas initial ineffective antibiotic therapy was not, the authors concluded (Pediatr.
Eight months after the initial lesion
, surgical treatment was performed to transfer the femoral biceps to the anterior rectus of the quadriceps femoris muscle using a lateral approach (Figure 2).
