Aims and background: Adenomyoepithelioma is a rare lesion that can involve the breast tissue. The diagnostic appearance of the lesion can give raise to a difficult differential diagnosis with breast carcinoma. Patients and methods: We report our experience with a case of adenomyoepithelioma whose differential diagnosis with a breast carcinoma was particularly difficult, leading to surgery for definitive histology. Discussion: Few papers are available with evidence about adenomyoepithelioma. The difficult differential diagnosis and the potentiality of malignant evolution of this lesion could in principle justify a conservative surgical approach for final histology.

Abstract

Aims and background: Adenomyoepithelioma is a rare lesion that can involve the breast tissue. The diagnostic appearance of the lesion can give raise to a difficult differential diagnosis with breast carcinoma. Patients and methods: We report our experience with a case of adenomyoepithelioma whose differential diagnosis with a breast carcinoma was particularly difficult, leading to surgery for definitive histology. Discussion: Few papers are available with evidence about adenomyoepithelioma. The difficult differential diagnosis and the potentiality of malignant evolution of this lesion could in principle justify a conservative surgical approach for final histology.
