My commentary on the JPRAS article by Peter Cordeiro et al: Risk of breast implant associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) in a cohort of 3546 women prospectively followed long term after reconstruction with textured breast implants

There is international concern over BIA-ALCL and this paper by Peter Cordeiro adds significantly to our knowledge of the disease.

There is international concern over BIA-ALCL and this paper by Peter Cordeiro adds significantly to our knowledge of the disease. This is the largest single surgeon series published on the disease, and the senior author is to be congratulated on his meticulous recording and follow up of all his cases.

However, as well as adding to our understanding, it also brings to light additional questions and challenges for the international regulatory and surgical communities.
