Abstract:

OBJECTIVE. We describe the case of a woman with a left breast mass. At mammography, the mass was shown to be irregular and accompanied by coarse calcification. Core needle biopsy revealed invasive carcinoma and a mastectomy was performed. Histopathology showed fibrosis with partial hyalinization eccentrically placed within the tumor with a large area of calcification at the core.

CONCLUSION. Benign calcifications within a breast mass are not diagnostic of a benign process if the imaging characteristics of the mass are suspicious.
