Occult breast carcinoma presenting with axillary metastases is a difficult clinical problem. Mammography is recommended as the diagnostic tool for detecting breast masses, but is very insensitive. In two consecutive patients with nonpalpable carcinoma of the breast, the detection of breast lesions was made by color Doppler sonography. The sensitivity of the technique makes it a useful diagnostic aid in patients with negative mammograms.
