Title: Penrose Drain As A Foreign Body In The Breast
Author: De Souza G.A.
Abstract: Two cases of women who underwent breast nodule exeresis and drainage are described; in both instances a Penrose drain was used and part of the drain, remaining in the surgical cavity after the surgery, acted as a foreign body. The author discusses the reasons why it can happen, as well as the need to take this possibility into account in the differential diagnosis of clinical findings (e.g., nodules) or mammographic alterations (e.g., gross calcification) in the vicinity of a previous surgery scar.
