a Department of Breast Surgery , Tianjin Central Hospital of Gynecology and Obstetrics , Tianjin , China.

Idiopathic granulomatous lobular matitis (IGLM) is a rare non-specific inflammatory disease of the breast. Although IGLM is completely benign, it is easily confused with cancer due to progressive breast lump with firmly unilateral and discrete mass, nipple retraction and sinus formation. Patients with IGLM are usually associated with inflammation of the overlying skin. Read More

Ultrasound of pediatric breast masses: what to do with lumps and bumps.

Pediatr Radiol 2015 Oct 12;45(11):1584-99; quiz 1581-3. Epub 2015 Jul 12.

Department of Radiology, University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, WA, USA.

The approach to breast masses in children differs from that in adults in many ways, including the differential diagnostic considerations, imaging algorithm and appropriateness of biopsy as a means of further characterization. Most pediatric breast masses are benign, either related to breast development or benign neoplastic processes. Biopsy is rarely needed and can damage the developing breast; thus radiologists must be familiar with the imaging appearance of common entities so that biopsies are judiciously recommended.

Complex cystic breast masses in ultrasound examination.

Diagn Interv Imaging 2014 Feb 13;95(2):169-79. Epub 2014 Jan 13.

Medical Imaging Department, Institut Curie, 26, rue d'Ulm, 75005 Paris, France.

Complex cystic masses are defined as lesions composed of anechoic (cystic) and echogenic (solid) components, unlike complicated cysts, the echogenic fluid content of which imitates a solid lesion. Complex masses are classified as ACR4 and require histological verification by percutaneous biopsy and/or surgical ablation. The etiology is diverse, and can be benign or high risk (an abscess, hematoma, fat necrosis, fibrocystic mastopathy, a phyllodes tumor, papilloma) as much as malignant (papillary cancer, necrotic cancer, a ductal carcinoma in situ, metastases).

Subareolar abscess of the breast in a male. A report of two cases with fine needle aspiration cytology diagnosis.

Acta Cytol 1997 Nov-Dec;41(6):1819-22

Department of Pathology, Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre, Madrid, Spain.

Background: Fine needle aspiration (FNA) is a well-established method for the diagnosis of breast diseases in males, but very little attention has been focused on inflammatory lesions. Previous reports do not mention subareolar abscess (SA), which is a distinct entity in breasts of females.

Cases: Two adult males presented for FNA of recurrent breast masses located near the nipple. Read More

Fine needle aspiration of breast masses. An analysis of 1,398 patients in a community hospital.

Acta Cytol 1997 Mar-Apr;41(2):341-7

Department of Pathology, "Valle del Nalón" Hospital (Instituto Nacional de la Salud), Langreo, Asturias, Spain.

Objective: To determine the diagnostic efficacy of breast fine needle aspiration (FNA) in the routine practice of a community hospital.

Study Design: The study group consisted of 1,398 consecutive FNA biopsies of the female breast performed at our institution during a five-year period; 450 (32%) had histologic follow-up. Both FNA and the histologic diagnosis were compared in order to establish the accuracy, efficiency and safety of the FNA breast technique. Read More

Conservative management of infective mastitis and breast abscesses after ultrasonographic assessment.

Br J Surg 1996 Oct;83(10):1413-4

Department of Surgery, Hull Royal Infirmary, UK.

Current practice in this unit for a suspected breast abscess is preliminary ultrasonographic scan, aspiration of any pus, antibiotic therapy and repeat aspiration in the outpatient clinic if necessary. Inflammatory masses are treated with antibiotics alone. A retrospective review of this strategy has been made. Read More

Abscess in the non-lactating breast: radiodiagnostic aspects.

Authors:
M Muttarak

Australas Radiol 1996 Aug;40(3):223-5

Department of Radiology, Faculty of Medicine, Chiang Mai University, Thailand.

The value of mammography and ultrasound in evaluating abscesses in the non-lactating breast was assessed in 20 patients. Inflammatory breast masses in the non-lactating period are uncommon and the clinical diagnosis can be very difficult when signs of inflammation are absent. There were 20 patients ranging in age from 25 to 60 years in the present study; the mean age was 39. Read More

Mammographic features of breast tuberculosis: the skin bulge and sinus tract sign.

Clin Radiol 1996 May;51(5):354-8

Department of Radiology, College of Medicine and King Khalid University Hospital, King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Six cases with bacteriologically and/or histologically proven breast tuberculosis were analysed out of 1152 consecutive mammograms performed. The objective was to identify some factors that may facilitate pre-operative mammographic and ultrasonographic diagnosis of breast tuberculosis. Nipple retraction and coarse stromal texture occurred in all six cases. Read More

Breast infection. Mammographic and sonographic findings with clinical correlation.

Invest Radiol 1995 Oct;30(10):582-7

University of Michigan Medical Center, Department of Radiology, Ann Arbor, USA.

Rationale And Objectives: To characterize the mammographic, sonographic, and clinical findings of breast infection and to determine characteristics that could help differentiate it from inflammatory breast carcinoma.

Methods: The mammograms, sonograms, and clinical records of 21 consecutive patients who had mammography or sonography within 48 hours of presenting with breast infection were retrospectively reviewed. To exclude other causes of breast inflammation, patients were required to have histologic or aspiration results specific for infection. Read More

Benign spindle and inflammatory lesions of the breast: diagnosis by fine-needle aspiration.

Diagn Cytopathol 1995 Mar;12(2):126-30

Department of Pathology, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, USA.

We describe fine-needle aspiration (FNA) findings in 7 patients with breast masses showing numerous spindle cells in smear material. The benign nature of these lesions was confirmed by clinical follow-up (n = 4) or surgical excision with histologic examination (n = 3). The final diagnosis included one case each of myofibroblastoma, juvenile hypertrophy, post-FNA reactive stromal proliferation, stromal induction in proliferative fibrocystic disease, and subareolar abscess.

99Tcm-MIBI mammoscintigraphy of breast masses: early and delayed imaging.

Nucl Med Commun 1995 Mar;16(3):150-6

Peking Union Medical College Hospital, China.

Forty patients with breast mass and 10 female controls underwent double-phase (15 min and 3 h) 99Tcm-sestamibi (MIBI) imaging. Another four post-mastectomy patients with suspected metastases underwent total body imaging at 15 min. The 99Tcm-MIBI images of all 10 female controls showed symmetrical homogeneous radioactivity in both breasts. Read More

Diagnosis and treatment of symptomatic breast masses in the pediatric population.

J Pediatr Surg 1995 Feb;30(2):182-6; discussion 186-7

Department of Surgery, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, USA.

Between 1980 and 1993, 74 children and adolescents were referred for surgical evaluation of palpable breast masses. Thirty-two were managed nonoperatively for unilateral thelarche (26), fibroadenoma (3), gynecomastia (2), or hemorrhagic cyst (1). The other 42 children had surgical intervention for giant or painful fibroadenomas (19), breast abscesses (5), painful gynecomastia (6), metastatic disease (4), or other conditions (8). Read More

Safety, accuracy, and diagnostic yield of needle localization biopsy of the breast performed using local anesthesia.

J Am Coll Surg 1994 Sep;179(3):267-72

Department of Surgery, New England Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts.

Background: In changing our technique to performing needle localization breast biopsies (NLBB) using local anesthesia in an outpatient setting, we investigated whether or not our complication rates with local anesthesia were acceptable when compared with complications from a cohort of biopsies of the breast performed for palpable masses. We were also interested in determining whether or not our rate of missed biopsies was within acceptable ranges.

Study Design: Complications occurring in 283 patients who underwent 301 NLBB using local anesthesia between 1983 and 1991 were compared with complications occurring after excision of 249 palpable masses of the breast excised using local anesthesia during this period. Read More
