The case of a 67-year-old woman with a large lump in the left axillary region and the left breast is presented. Pathologic investigation of these masses in 2 hospitals was inconclusive.
Further work-up in our radiologic department showed beside the presence of the two tumoral masses, abnormalities with the radiologic characteristics of granulomatous mastitis. Final pathologic analysis showed the presence of an invasive ductal carcinoma in the two masses in combination with a granulomatous stromal reaction.
