Breast Surgery

Liposarcoma is a mesenchymal neoplasm of uncertain pathogenesis. It is the second most common soft tissue sarcoma, found uncommonly in the breast, and constitutes less than 1% of all malignant breast tumors. We report a case of a 50-year-old woman with a pleomorphic type liposarcoma of the breast.

Breast hamartoma is an uncommon pathological entity. It is exceedingly rare to find ductal carcinoma in situ or invasive carcinoma within a breast hamartoma. We report one such case treated at our unit.

We report the case of a 91-year-old lady who presented with a gastrocutaneous fistula in the absence of any recent surgery. We review the literature and discuss this uncommon surgical problem.
