Abstract

Numerous reports have been published regarding the reconstruction of the breast, but the majority of these reports focus on breast reconstruction for defects caused by the removal of breast cancers. The authors treated a rare case of unilateral amastia where a 54-year-old female had a complete absence of the breast on one side, though the breast on the other side was intact. The defect was reconstructed successfully with a transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap (TRAM) flap. The present study introduces this rare case with reference to past reports of amastia.
