Breast Filariasis Diagnosed by Real Time Sonographic Imaging: A Case Report.

Sherwani P, Singhal S, Kumar N, Narula MK, Anand R, Pathania OP - Iran J Radiol (2016)

Bottom Line: A 30-year-old woman presented with a palpable subcutaneous nodule in the areolar region of the left breast.Sonomammographic examination revealed 2 cystic lesions showing typical "filarial dance" as vigorous twirling movement of multiple curvilinear echoes with mixed red blue color Doppler signals that was non-rhythmic, nonpulsatile, and the characteristic pulse Doppler trace due to irregular worm movement.Real time sonographic demonstration of these typical features is pathognomonic for filariasis, especially in endemic areas and treatment should be initiated without delay on the basis of ultrasound.

Mentions: We present a 30-year-old female who presented in surgical out patient department with complaints of palpable subcutaneous nodular swelling in the areolar region of the left breast for past 2 months with on and off pain, and itching and one episode of serous discharge. The overlying and adjacent skin appeared normal (Figure 1). On examination, there was no palpable lump in the breast and no palpable axillary lymphadenopathy.
