Segmental distribution of ductal carcinoma in situ

Discussion:

Confirmed case of DCIS.

Evaluation of both the morphology of microcalcifications, and their distribution are important in distinguishing malignant from benign. Always remember that calcifications limited to a segment of the breast deserve careful workup. This case of DCIS is limited to the upper outer quadrant of the left breast. Calcifications distributed like this deserve sampling.
