Integration of magnetic resonance imaging in characterization of inflammatory breast disorders

ConclusionDiagnostic approach to inflammatory disorders includes multi-imaging modalities. Each modality plays a specific role in diagnosis with the highest specificity encountered on MRI evaluation followed by ultrasound and limited specificity on mammographic evaluation. It is essential to discriminate benign from malignant etiologies as there are major differences in their prognosis, and treatment options.

ConclusionsWhole-lesion histogram and texture analysis using apparent diffusion coefficient provide a non-invasive analytical approach to the differentiation between IGM and IBC, both presenting with non-mass enhancement without rim-enhanced masses.

Abstract Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis (IGM) is a rare inflammatory breast disease mimicking carcinoma and puerperal or non-puerperal mastitis. The primary purpose of this prospectively performed case control study was to compare clinical and imaging signs of IGM with the reference group of nonspecific, non- puerperal mastitis (NM) to identify the most typical clinical and imaging signs essential for a correct differential diagnosis. The secondary purpose was to present a new approach to non-invasive treatment. Thirty-nine women with histologically proven IGM and twenty-six patients with nonspecific mastitis u...

Publication date: Available online 26 March 2019Source: IDCasesAuthor(s): Abha Shrestha, Keyoor Gautam, Devish Pyakurel, Santosh Pradhan, Vivek PantAbstractBreast tuberculosis is a rare form of extra-pulmonary tuberculosis. It is rare in western countries, usually occurs in multiparous and lactating women but rare in male and older women. It has a varied clinical, radiological and pathological presentation that can be similar to that of a breast abscess or carcinoma. Constitutional symptoms are not usually present making it even harder to diagnose clinically. Here we present a case of a young Nepalese woman with tubercular...

ConclusionsOncoplastic breast reconstructive techniques play a fundamental role in the management of these patients, as they give the surgeon the freedom to perform a wider resection, thus reducing the rate of recurrence, whilst at the same time, knowing that there are reconstructive options to restore any breast aesthetics. As such, the value of a multidisciplinary team cannot be underestimated.Level of Evidence: Level V, therapeutic study.

Granulomatous mastitis (GM) is a rare benign inflammatory breast disease that affects mostly women of childbearing age with a history of breastfeeding. The etiopathogenesis is still unknown; however, inflammation as the result of a reaction to trauma, metabolic or hormonal processes, autoimmunity, and an infection withCorynebacterium kroppenstedtii have all been implicated. Clinical findings are pain, mass, hyperemia, and inflammation. Because the clinical presentation can mimic infectious mastitis or inflammatory carcinoma, the disease course is often protracted. The diagnosis is made by histopathology. Biopsies show a gr...

ConclusionAlthough clinical and radiological findings of patients with GM may mimic those of breast carcinoma, our study showed that women of childbearing age, especially among Hispanic ethnicity with a recent history of pregnancy or high prolactin level and newly tender mass-like lesion, in addition to new focal asymmetry on mammogram and heterogeneous hypoechoic irregular-shaped mass on ultrasound exam, should raise concern for GM. Non-invasive approach and clinical follow-up were the preferred treatment method.

Authors: Fok DSF, Joethy J Abstract Central venous stenosis is a rare cause of unilateral breast edema occurring in hemodialysis patients that needs to be differentiated from other differential diagnoses, including, but not limited to, inflammatory breast carcinoma, mastitis, lymphedema, and congestive heart failure. All reports of similar cases in the available literature have described improvement or resolution of the edema after treatment. Herein, we report and discuss the pathophysiology of breast edema formation in a patient who presented with massive left-sided breast edema 7 years after being diagnosed with ...
