The early detection of carcinoma is the high point of mammography. We present 2 patients with pathological diagnoses of DCIS with unusual mammographic findings for which one needs to have a higher index of suspicion. The first patient presented with multifocal disease requiring biopsy of all visible lesions, and the second patient (a young woman) presented with segmental distribution of calcifications, which might have been missed had a single-view baseline mammogram not been done.
