Abstract:   (561 Views)
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and the most common cause of cancer-related death in women worldwide. Distant metastases in breast cancer occur in the bones, lungs, liver, and brain. Surgical treatment is recommended because the resection of primary tumor in breast cancer has a positive effect on prognosis and survival. The importance of ablative therapy has increased with the development of systemic treatments for a small number of organ metastases, which are referred to as oligometastases. Patients with isolated bone metastases have better prognosis than those with other visceral metastases. In single bone metastases, systemic and local treatments are preferred using a multidisciplinary approach. This case report presents a breast cancer patient with contralateral isolated scapula glenoid metastases, which have not been reported in the literature.
Keywords: Breast cancer, metastases, scapula.
