Breast conserving therapy (BCT) is preferred over mastectomy in select cancer patients with the aim of tumour ablation with clear margins and leaving an aesthetically acceptable breast mound. We report on a particular therapeutic mammaplasty where a false positive margin occurred due to the 3-dimensional disorientation of the excised specimen. © 2010 British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons.
