Cytohistological correlation of early changes in spontaneously infarcted fibroadenoma-a rare case report.

Ecancermedicalscience 2012 12;6:257. Epub 2012 Jun 12.

Department of Pathology, Government Medical College, Latur-413512, Maharashtra, India.

Fibroadenoma is the most commonly diagnosed benign tumour in adolescents and young women but spontaneous infarction in fibroadenoma is rarely seen. We report here a case of spontaneously infracted fibroadenoma in a 20 year old unmarried female without history of trauma or previous fine needle aspiration. It is important to recognize this entity because microscopic findings in an infarct are influenced by the duration of the infarct and on cytology it mimics mastitis, duct ectasia and even carcinoma.

Diagnostic difficulties in spontaneous infarction of a fibroadenoma in an adolescent: case report.

Diagn Cytopathol 2002 Jan;26(1):26-8

Department of Pathology, Government Medical College, Nagpur, Maharashtra, India.

Spontaneous infarction is an uncommon complication occurring in fibroadenoma of the breast. Although infarction following fine-needle aspiration has been reported in the literature, to the best of our knowledge this is the first reported case where infarction was encountered on first-time aspiration. It is necessary to distinguish infarcted fibroadenoma from mastitis, duct ectasia, mammary tuberculosis, and carcinoma on cytology smears. Read More
