Abstract

Background and Objectives: Locally advanced breast cancers may form large, infected skin ulcers, which were traditionally treated with radiation therapy. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is now standard treatment for locally advanced breast cancer. Methods: The response of 33 patients with ulcerated breast cancer to primary chemotherapy was retrospectively analyzed. Antibiotics were not used in primary treatment. Tumor and ulcer responses were evaluated independently. Results: Chemotherapy alone healed 18 of these ulcers. Neither responding nor refractory patients developed sepsis during this treatment. Conclusions: Chemotherapy is safe and effective treatment for patients with infected malignant breast ulcers and does not cause systemic sepsis. (C) 1997 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
