Breast Implant–Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL): Program Overview
Breast implant–associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) is a rare T-cell lymphoma and is distinct from systemic ALCL. In the U.S., the FDA began to recognize reports of ALCL and a potential association with breast implants in 2011, and subsequently started a collaboration with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the Plastic Surgery Foundation (PSF) to create the Patient Registry and Outcomes for Breast Implants and Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL) Etiology and Epidemiology (PROFILE Registry). Incidence has been associated with the textured surface of the implant and is highest in the more highly textured (ie, greater surface area) implants. Reports indicate that the majority of cases, if diagnosed quickly, are limited to effusion around the implant and can frequently be effectively treated with surgical intervention without the need for adjuvant systemic therapy. However, given the recent history of BIA-ALCL and the infrequency of incidence, physicians who see patients at first presentation of disease are unlikely to be familiar with symptoms.
This live educational activity will be held in conjunction with the 37th Annual Miami Breast Cancer Conference®. The panel of experts will discuss and review data pertinent to the diagnosis and management of BIA-ALCL in an engaging conversational format. This multidisciplinary conversation will help you provide evidence-based care and counseling to your patients who have or may be at risk of BIA-ALCL.
