    Abstract

    In this case report we describe a 55-year-old Caucasian female who had developed an itching, erythematous plaque on the right breast seven months after she received a permanent tissue expander. Topical corticosteroids had no effect upon which a capsulectomy was performed and the complaints disappeared.
