Abstract: Invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) is the most common invasive breast cancer. The patient was a 58 years old woman with a massive left breast tumor developed on a large left mammary gland with a parceled invasion of pectoralis major muscle, skin dimpling and nipple retraction accompanied by large left axillary lymphadenophaties . We performed a radical surgical intervention including left radical modified mastectomy (Madden 1965) with left supraclavian and axillary lymph nodes dissection. We expected to have difficulties closing the skin defect so we had in the surgical team from the beginning of the operation a plastic surgeon to help with it. The wound finally was closed without skin grafting ,sliding, after a minimal dissection ,the upper ,lower and lateral left skin flaps. The pathological exam of the resected specimens revealed invasive ductal carcinoma IDC NOS, moderately differentiated (intermediate grade),with tumoral infiltration of 15 axillary lymph nodes and their surrounding fatty tissue. Her postoperative course was uneventful being discharged in the tenth day following to start the oncological treatment.
