Abstract

A spiculated breast lesion on mammogram is highly suggestive of malignancy. However, it can be seen on rare occasions in benign conditions including foreign body associated granuloma. We describe two foreign body reactions in the breast caused by suture materials and describe the clinical, radiological and pathological features.
