Abstract

We report a patient with primary B-cell lymphoma of the breast complicated by smoldering type adult T-cell leukaemia (ATL). A 52-year-old Japanese woman complained of a rapidly enlarging lump in her right breast. She had been diagnosed to have smoldering type ATL since the age of 49. Aspiration cytology and subsequent excisional biopsy revealed B-cell type lymphoma of the breast. A gallium-scintigram showed abnormal accumulation in the bilateral breasts. Radiology was adopted because the lesion was localized only in the breasts and associated with smoldering type ATL. The lesions disappeared after the treatment.
