The early detection of carcinoma is the highlight of mammography. We present two patients with pathological diagnosis of DCIS with unusual mammographic findings for which one needs to have a higher index of suspicion. The first patient presented with multifocal disease requiring biopsy of all visible lesions and the second patient (twenty four years old) presented with segmental distribution of calcifications, which may have been missed had a single-view baseline mammogram not been done.
