The case report demonstrates the difficulties in the differential diagnosis between cases of Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BI-ALCL) and rupture of the breast implant. Such patients examining algorithm should include breast ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, puncture of the breast under sonographic navigation, cytological examination of the obtained fluid. In cases of suspected BI-ALCL a total capsulectomy should be performed during surgery with subsequent

The low incidence of BI-ALCL should not lead to a lack of caution regarding the verification of this neoplastic process by plastic surgeons and oncologists.
