We report a patient who, 3 1/2 years after mastectomy and breast reconstruction using a Becker implant, developed haematoma around the implant. We believe this is the first description of late haematoma formation in association with tissue expander (Becker implant), the differential diagnosis of which includes infection, recurrent cancer and implant rupture.
