Yamashita, Y., et al. (2017) Effectiveness of Pertuzumab, Trastuzumab, and Docetaxel Combination Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy for HER2-Positive Inflammatory Breast Cancer: A Case Report. Breast Care (Basel). 2017 Mar;12(1):45-47. doi: 10.1159/000457948.
Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is the most aggressive form of primary breast cancer.
To improve the poor prognosis of IBC, combined modality therapy is required, including chemotherapy and local treatment such as surgery and/or radiation therapy. In this case, combination neoadjuvant chemotherapy with PTD for HER2-positive IBC was effective, and this regimen may contribute to further improvements in the cure rate for this malignancy.
