Isolated eosinophilic infiltration of the breast

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

We report the eighth case of eosinophilic mastitis and the first one without an association with peripheral eosinophilia or systemic involvement. A 51-year-old diabetic presented with a painful right breast lump. The mammogram, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging suggested a diagnosis of periductal mastitis, however, a sinister etiology of breast carcinoma could not be ruled out. Diagnosis was made by vacuum assisted biopsy which revealed features of eosinophilic mastitis.

No MeSH data available.

Mentions: Mammogram [Figure 1] revealed marked increased trabecular density in the area of palpable abnormality in the upper outer quadrant of the right breast with prominent lymph nodes having an attenuated hilum Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BIRADS 4a). Left breast was unremarkable (BIRADS 1).
