|Title:||Breast Mass in a Rubens Painting||Contributor(s):||Lazzeri, Davide (author); Lippi, Donatella (author); Castello, Manuel (author); Weisz, George M (author)||Publication Date:||2016||Open Access:||Yes||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/19275||Open Access Link:||http://www.rmmj.org.il/userimages/536/1/PublishFiles/561Article.pdf||Abstract:||Deformity of the breast and axilla observed in famous paintings is a fascinating field for the medico-artists. The attempt of a retrospective diagnosis of breast tumors is highly challenging. This paper deals with a Rubens painting portraying the heroine Judith with a visible but previously unreported left breast mass. Though speculative, the present medico-artistic diagnosis is of a tumor likely to be of benign nature. It is of interest that the present case is the sixth breast disease discovered in Rubens's works.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Rambam Maimonides Medical Journal, 7(2), p. 1-4||Publisher:||Rambam Heath Care Campus||Place of Publication:||Israel||ISSN:||2076-9172||Field of Research (FOR):||210307 European History (excl.
