Metastatic Breast Cancer in Pleural Fluid

This carcinoma in an elderly woman recurred 4-1/2 years after diagnosis. Her mastectomy specimen showed 3 of 9 nodes positive for tumor, an infiltrating ductal carcinoma of no special type. Now, in addition to her malignant pleural effusion, her bone scan shows multiple skeletal metastases.
