Abstract

Two cases of breast lymphoma are described. The first case, a secondary 'large cell' non Hodgkin lymphoma, exceptionally involved a very young girl at the beginning of the systemic disease. Both ultrasound and mammographic examination suspected non benign lesions. Mammography was performed inspite of the tender age and the relative high density of parenchyma: the lesions have been easily detected due to their high density. In the second patient, with an uncommon localization of a lymphoplasmocitoid lymphoma, the mammographic findings were suggestive of malignancy and FNAB was unable to discriminate epithelial from lymphomatous type. The radiographic characteristics had already been described in literature and were similar for both cases. The authors emphasize some uncommon aspects that can suggest the lymphomatous localization instead of other nature: firstly the deep localization of the mass, secondly the presence of incomplete halo sign, finally the bilaterality or the prevalence of the right breast. However the definitively diagnosis were obtained by surgery in both cases. At least the opportunity of using fine needle biopsy or open biopsy is discussed.
