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.

Figure 2: Ultrasound of right breast shows hyper-reflective breast parenchyma with skin thickening and multiple prominent ducts and its branches with wall thickening and internal echoes

Mentions: US [Figure 2] showed hyper-reflective parenchyma with skin thickening in the upper half of right breast. Prominence of multiple ducts and its branches was seen in this region with wall thickening and internal echoes within the dilated ducts (BIRADS 4a). The right axilla showed a lymph node with irregular thickened cortex. These findings were suggestive of ductal etiology likely periductal mastitis, but neoplastic etiology could not be ruled out; therefore, histopathological correlation and contrast enhanced breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to see the extent of the disease were advised.
