Abstract

PURPOSE:

We report a galactocele as changing axillary lumps in both axillae.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

36-year-old woman visited to our hospital for her axillary lump. The diagnosis could be made under ultrasound examination and her recent pregnancy history. However, sonography-guided aspiration was done for confirmation.

RESULT:

We could confirm the galactocele arising in axillary accessory breast tissue.

CONCLUSION:

Clinical information indicating that such a palpable mass is associated with pregnancy as well as its sonography features along with adjunctive diagnostic aspiration, can help to correctly diagnose this rare entity.
