Abstract

Acellular dermal matrix (ADM) use in prosthetic breast reconstruction has become increasingly popular. Several benefits have been reported with this technique including diminished donor-site morbidity and improved aesthetic outcomes. Recently, in an effort to ascertain the overall safety and efficacy of this approach, an emphasis has been placed on identifying potential postoperative complications. This report describes a unique complication experienced with ADM use in which ADM conceals the detection of recurrent breast carcinoma.
