Abstract

The authors report 29 cases of primary mammary cytosteatonecrosis. Diagnosis can be difficult when clinical and radiological signs suggest a cancer, and this was the case in about half of these cases. Radiological signs suggest the diagnosis in only 10% of case,s even though the evocative signs (clear images surrounded by a border of condensation) are usually associated with suspicious skin lesions, and require histological verification. Even though lesions that are limited in extent when examined clinically and radiologically may be a cancer, the reverse, though very much less frequent, can also apply, and a very suggestive lesion with spicules and skin retraction may be benign. Histological examination before any major surgery is always essential.
