Abstract In February, 1952, a 49-year-old white, married woman was seen in the tumor clinic complaining of a lump in the right breast which had been present for two and one-half years. In addition, examination showed an umbilical hernia and a pilonidal sinus. The tumor was at this time clinically malignant, and in March radical mastectomy was performed. Histologically the neoplasm was adenocarcinoma. The patient remained under periodic observation and was asymptomatic until July, 1953, when she had pain in the right side of her chest, both in the back and the front. Clinical and radiologic examinations were both negative, but in November, 1953, a lump was felt in the right subclavicular fossa and small nodules were palpable in the mastectomy scar.
