Breast infections in breastfeeding women– case presentations of abscess, mastitis and more

For over 20 years, Dr Lisa Amir has been seeing breastfeeding women with nipple and breast pain and infections. As a medical student she was taught that most clinical diagnoses are made by taking a careful history. Allowing the patient to tell their own story, while asking pertinent questions, usually reveals the likely cause of the problem. Careful physical examination, and occasional use of investigations, confirm the diagnosis. Using case studies from her breastfeeding medicine practice, Lisa demonstrates how to ask the right questions to correctly diagnose and treat nipple and breast problems. She will present case studies including mastitis, recurrent mastitis, breast abscess, and nipple and breast candida infection, and also discuss rare and unusual causes of nipple and breast pain and infection.

This lecture is also offered as part of our Breastfeeding Education Bundle #2 Lecture Pack.
