Key Clinical Message
The patient developed multiple bone metastases following mastectomy with silicone reconstruction and contralateral augmentation for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) of the breast. She was diagnosed with contralateral invasive cancer. Distant metastasis of DCIS is rare, and other metastatic origins must be screened. However, screening of augmented breasts is difficult.
