Abstract: Local recurrence after mastectomy and autologous breast reconstruction is uncommon and tends to occur predictably within the superficial tissues or at the chest wall. We present a unique case of breast cancer recurrence involving the superficial and deep tissues. By parasitizing the pedicle of a free transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap pedicle, the tumour was seen to extend through the chest wall to the right pleura.
