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.

Magnetic resonance imaging shows heterogeneously dense fibroglandular tissue on T1-weighted image (A), edematous changes in the right breast on T2-weighted fat saturated image (B) and nonmass enhancement from 8 o'clock to 2 o'clock position in the right breast extending from the nipple to the periphery on postcontrast fat saturated T1-weighted (C). The area of enhancement in the outer half of the left breast represents background parenchymal enhancement

Figure 3: Magnetic resonance imaging shows heterogeneously dense fibroglandular tissue on T1-weighted image (A), edematous changes in the right breast on T2-weighted fat saturated image (B) and nonmass enhancement from 8 o'clock to 2 o'clock position in the right breast extending from the nipple to the periphery on postcontrast fat saturated T1-weighted (C). The area of enhancement in the outer half of the left breast represents background parenchymal enhancement

Mentions: MRI [Figure 3] revealed non-mass enhancement in the right breast extending from the nipple to the periphery from 8 o'clock to 2 o'clock position. There was mild prominence of caliber of few ducts, few of them revealing focal areas of dilatation. Edematous changes were noted in the right breast along with an enlarged rounded node in the right axilla with attenuated fatty hilum.
