Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) is a T-cell neoplasm that arises in the capsule around breast implants. While an association with implants has been proposed, no causal link has been identified and the pathophysiology and natural history of BIA-ALCL remain unknown. A literature review of 391 articles was performed to assess the current understanding of BIA-ALCL and to provide a balanced and unbiased view of the current controversy surrounding the disease.
