Goals and Objectives

Southern Medical Journal is an interdisciplinary, multi-specialty Journal, and articles span the spectrum of medical topics, providing timely, up-to-date information for primary care physicians and specialists alike. The SMJ enables physicians to provide the best possible care to patients in this age of rapidly changing modern medicine.  Therefore, the readers of the SMJ are an appropriate target for this article.

Hematological malignancies of the breast share a presentation similar to primary breast carcinomas but differ substantially in therapeutic approach and clinical outcomes. In this study, the frequency of hematological malignancies, their relative primary and secondary occurrences, and further characterization of the distinct histopathologies of these malignancies with a special focus on lymphomas are investigated.  Upon completion of this course, the learner should be better prepared to:

  • Review the types of hematologic malignancies that can present in the breast similarly to breast carcinomas;
  • Identify the data on frequency and relative primary and secondary occurrences.
