Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) is a complex topic with evolving classification and etiology. Commonalities between BIA-ALCL and lymphoproliferative disorders exist, suggesting that BIA-ALCL may be better represented on a spectrum of disease from benign effusion to malignant metastatic lymphoma. Meticulous sterile surgical technique, involving the use of betadine-containing irrigation, should be used to decrease the biological burden introduced into the surgical field and possibly prevent future incidences of BIA-ALCL.
