Locally advanced breast cancer has a poor prognosis. Skin infiltration, ulceration and invasion of the chest wall, in the absence of distant metastases, worsen dramatically the quality of life. The Authors report 4 cases of one time wide resection and reconstruction using a pedicled myocutaneous flap of latissimus dorsi. This technique allowed good and rapid palliation of local symptoms.
