Role of cytology in fibroadenoma with clinging carcinoma.

Swetha N, Geetha Ch, Prayaga AK - J Cytol (2013)

Bottom Line: Fibroadenoma is the most common benign breast tumor in adolescent girls and young women with a peak incidence in the second and third decades of life.We describe a case of clinging type of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) arising within a fibroadenoma.Clinging carcinoma, a variant of DCIS is an under recognized entity.

ABSTRACT
Fibroadenoma is the most common benign breast tumor in adolescent girls and young women with a peak incidence in the second and third decades of life. Carcinoma arising within a fibroadenoma is rare and is usually discovered incidentally. We describe a case of clinging type of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) arising within a fibroadenoma. Clinging carcinoma, a variant of DCIS is an under recognized entity. Diagnosis of DCIS is made based on architecture and cytology. This case report highlights the role of fine needle aspiration cytology in the diagnosis of this entity coexisting in a fibroadenoma.

Figure 1: MRI of bilateral breast lumps- 3.8 × 3.5 × 3 cm irregular speculated mass in left breast (Suspicious of malignancy), 2.3 × 1.5 cm well defined mass lesion in right breast (less than 6% malignant probability)

Mentions: A 48 years old lady, a known diabetic and hypertensive, presented with bilateral breast lumps of one week duration. There was no family history of breast or ovarian tumors. Patient had regular menstrual cycles in the past. On examination, there was a 4 × 4 cm hard lump in lower inner quadrant of left breast which was fixed to the chest wall and there was a lump in right breast, firm mobile measuring 1 × 1 cm in the lower outer quadrant. Impression of left breast lump on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was suspicious of malignancy [Figure 1]. Right breast lump was a 2.3 × 1.5 cm well defined mass lesion with type 1 contrast enhancement pattern (less than 6% malignant probability) with bilateral axillary lymphadenopathy. Ultrasound and bone scan were negative for detectable metastasis.
