Breast calcifications in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

Author information

East Lancs Hospitals NHS Trust, Department of Histopathology, Burnley, Lancs, UK.


A 52-year-old Caucasian woman with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) presented for mammography as part of the NHS Breast Screening Programme. A focus of dense calcifications was seen in the left breast. Core biopsy showed stromal calcification. The patient insisted on removal of the abnormal area. The wide local excision showed stromal calcification identical to that seen in the core biopsy. Clinicians should be aware of EDS patients presenting with breast stromal calcifications and this fact should be taken into account when investigating such lesions.
