Abstract

Silicone-induced granuloma is a well-known, but rare delayed complication of implantation of silicone breast prostheses and consists of a foreign body reaction with encapsulation of free silicone, most often due to implant rupture with silicone leakage. We present a case report of a patient with a silicone-induced granuloma. On a PET/CT silicone-induced granuloma can mimic disseminated cancer.
