Abstract

Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis clinically and histologically mimics an inflammatory carcinoma. A correct approach including ultrasound, clinical and histological analysis can safely identify a patient with this pathology, orienting to adequate therapy with anti-inflammatory and antibiotic drugs and leaving the surgical approach only for case unresponsive to medical therapy.
