Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is a form of locally advanced breast cancer that has been difficult to diagnose. With the application of the Poussée Évolutive and American Joint Committee on Cancer classifications for IBC, IBC trends have significantly shifted in Tunisia. The authors reviewed the historical data of IBC cases in Tunisia and discovered a decreasing trend to <10% IBC cases.
