GARCIA-WENNINGER, Miguel; SANDOVAL-PEREZ, Jose  and  ALDANA-UBILUS, Celso. Breast reconstruction in Severe Poland Syndrome. Cir. parag. [online]. 2020, vol.44, n.3, pp.39-40. ISSN 2307-0420.

Poland syndrome is a rare congenital malformation, characterized by hypoplasia of the breast and nipple, lack of subcutaneous tissue, and absence of the sternal portion of the pectoralis major muscle. We present the case of a 25-year-old patient who underwent reconstruction with a latissimus dorsi flap, tissue expander, silicone breast prosthesis, and breast lipofilling plus nipple and areola grafting in various stages.

Keywords : Latissimus dorsi flap; Poland syndrome; breast implant.
