Abstract

Lactating adenoma is one of the breast tumours associated with pregnancy. A case of lactating adenoma, unusual on account of its huge size, is presented. Large size and history of rapid growth can lead to a mistaken diagnosis of malignancy. A review of the literature of this particular tumour with the different views on its histogenesis and the differential diagnoses are also discussed.
