44 year old ICU nurse and mother of two presented with left breast cancer. Patient had a screening mammography performed demonstrating suspicious calcifications in the right breast. Stereotactic biopsy returned back infiltrating ductal carcinoma.

Skin sparing mastectomy was performed along with immediate DIEP flap reconstruction. Patient is seen below six months out after the initial surgery.
