1/10. Aspiration cytology of sarcomatoid carcinoma of the breast: Report of a case with cystic change.

    Sarcomatoid/metaplastic carcinomas of the breast are rare breast malignancies that show a myriad of cytohistologic patterns in aspirates. These poorly differentiated invasive carcinomas contain both ductal and mesenchymal elements with transitional forms displaying either spindle, squamous, chondroid, or osseous differentiation. We describe such a neoplasm in a 68-yr-old woman, the diagnosis of which was missed at the initial fine-needle aspiration (FNA) due to cystic change. Extensive cystic change in a sarcomatoid carcinoma is unusual and is reported for the first time in the English literature. ( info)

2/10. Cystic adenomyoepithelioma of the breast.

    Cystic adenomyoepithelioma of the breast is a rare tumor. We report a case of this entity in a 42-year-old woman who presented with a lump behind her left nipple. Clinical examination suggested the diagnosis of a cyst. Ultrasound showed a cyst with an intracystic mass. The lesion was biopsied and found to be a cystic adenomyoepithelioma. ( info)

3/10. Hydatid disease in the breast: a case report.

    A case of primary breast hydatid disease observed in a 42-year old female patient is reported. physical examination, mammography and ultrasonography were the methods used for the diagnosis. The lesion was located in the upper outer quadrant of the right breast. The mass was surgically removed under local anaesthesia. No complications were observed postoperatively. We wanted to emphasize the importance of keeping in mind the possibility of hydatid disease in cystic breast lesions, particularly in endemic regions. ( info)

4/10. Galactocele in a male infant with congenital hypopituitarism.

    Galactocele is an uncommon benign breast lesion usually occurring in young lactating women. It is a rare cause of breast enlargement in children. We report a galactocele in a male child with congenital hypopituitarism and propose an association between the two conditions. ( info)

5/10. A case of intracystic papillary carcinoma with a multilocular cyst of the breast in male.

    Intracystic papillary carcinoma of the breast in males is a very rare disease but has an excellent prognosis. We report the case of a 68-year-old man who had a right subareolar soft mass. Imaging examinations showed a multilocular cyst with an intracystic component, and benign disease was diagnosed. Fine needle aspiration of the cyst fluid revealed many malignant cells, and modified radical mastectomy was performed under general anesthesia. Histological examination showed intracystic papillary carcinoma with a multilocular cyst. No positive lymph nodes were involved. The diagnosis of intracystic papillary carcinoma of male breast should be made carefully to avoid misdiagnosing benign disease. ( info)

6/10. Papillary intracystic carcinoma of the female breast--role of ultrasonography.

    We report on a 76-year-old patient with papillary intracystic breast carcinoma. Papillary intracystic carcinomas represent a rare entity. Among all malignant breast tumors, this lesion has an incidence of 0.5-2%. palpation is not sufficient to distinguish benign from malignant findings. The same applies to mammography, unless the tumor infiltrates the cyst wall. The method of pneumocystography has become obsolete. Sonography is the preferred diagnostic modality to distinguish cystic from solid lesions and to differentiate simple cysts from cysts with intracystic growth. In this respect, Doppler and power Doppler sonography can be instrumental. It is feasible to obtain preoperative ultrasound guided FNAC or core biopsies of the cystic and solid components for cytological or histological verification. Complete excision of the cyst which should include the intracystic growth is considered the treatment of choice. ( info)

7/10. Giant fat containing breast masses: report of six cases.

    Six patients with giant fat containing breast masses encountered over a 20 year period are presented including a brief review of the literature. These benign tumours especially the giant varieties are rare but are likely to be increasingly diagnosed because of the widespread use of mammography. ( info)

8/10. A case of intracystic breast cancer.

    The case of a 70-year-old female patient with family history of breast cancer come to the breast Unit for the presence of a nodular swelling in the right breast is discussed. On mammography and US a gross cystic neoformation with vascularized mural nodes was identified. Another contralateral solid nodular neoformation suggestive of malignancy was also present. Diagnostic completion with MRI confirmed the mixed solid, partly cystic nature of the right lesion, leading to the differential diagnosis with cystosarcoma phylloides and intracystic tumor. On the left side, MRI confirmed the presence of the second lesion whose morphologic and dynamic characteristics suggested a neoplastic lesion. At the anatomopathological examination the left lesion was shown to be an infiltrating ductal carcinoma; the right lesion was shown to be an intracystic tumor. ( info)

9/10. Intracystic papilloma in the breast of a male given long-term phenothiazine therapy: a case report.

    We experienced a very rare case of intracystic papilloma in a 57-year-old man who came to our hospital complaining of a left subareolar mass and nipple discharge. The patient had a history of chronic schizophrenia, necessitating long-term treatment with phenothiazines. His serum prolactin levels were elevated. mammography demonstrated a well defined mass with microcalcifications. ultrasonography revealed a cyst with an intracystic component. The inner lesion of the mass enhanced on contrast-enhanced computed tomography. The carcinoembryonic antigen concentration of the cyst fluid was 400 ng/mL and no malignant cells were found by aspiration biopsy cytology. Excisional biopsy was performed under local anesthesia. Pathological examination revealed the intracystic component to be intracystic papilloma. There are ten reports of male intracystic papilloma including ours. We report the second case of a patient given long-term phenothiazine therapy, which is known to increase serum prolactin levels. ( info)

10/10. Papillary carcinoma in a male breast cyst: a diagnostic challenge.

    Intracystic papillary breast carcinoma is a rare form of non-invasive carcinoma with an excellent prognosis. It accounts for less than 0.5% of breast cancers. We report the case of a 75-year-old man presenting with a painless cystic lump in the right breast. ultrasonography showed a cystic lesion and aspiration revealed blood-stained fluid with suspicion of malignancy. Excisional biopsy was necessary to confirm the diagnosis and also indicated that local treatment was adequate. ( info)
