Abstract

Experience with 5 cases of medullary carcinoma of the breast is reported. Reviewing the literature, medullary carcinoma appears to have a better prognosis than infiltrating ductal carcinoma so the proper surgical approach is represented by conservative procedures for lesions < 3 cm with no more than 3 nodes involved. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy don't seem to improve the survival rate.
