GUTIERREZ C, Lorena  y  MONTES A, Alfonso. Siliconomas: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2002, vol.130, n.7, pp.793-797. ISSN 0034-9887.

In the early 1950s, the liquid silicone breast injection technique was developed in Japan. This breast augmentation method had local and systemic complications. Nevertheless, this technique is still used in some countries like Chile. We report a 41 years old woman, consulting due to breast pain and a nodule in her left breast. The clinical work up confirmed the presence of siliconomas, caused by silicone breast injections one year before. The physical and radiological findings (mammograms, ultrasound and breast MRI) of this woman are reported (Rev Méd Chile 2002; 130: 793-7)
