Primary breast amyloidosis is rare, usually manifestating as suspicious masses in mammography, with or without associated microcalcifications. The final diagnosis is based on fine needle aspiration cytology or biopsy yielding clumps of amorphous material surrounded by lymphocytes and giant cells that characterize this entity. In our case the only mammographic finding was that of clustered, suspicious microcalcifications without any associated mass.
