Angiomatosis of the breast is an extremely rare, benign vascular lesion. This is a diagnostic challenge, given the limited number of cases reported in the literature. Additionally, due to similar features of the more common malignant vascular tumor, angiosarcoma familiarity with angiomatosis in the differential diagnosis is important. We present a case of angiomatosis of the breast in a 28-year-old female. The lesion presented as an incidental enhancing mass on computed tomography scan initially and subsequent mammogram and ultrasound studies did not show a correlate. Next, magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated an enhancing correlate for which magnetic resonance imaging biopsy and subsequent excisional biopsy demonstrated angiomatosis of the breast.
