Abstract

ABSTRACT: Granulomatous mastitis is a rare benign inflammatory disease of the breast, predominantly affecting women of childbearing age. Because of its low prevalence, the literature is limited, and its treatment algorithm is unclear. However, it is important to understand this disease for timely diagnosis and treatment. Our overview with imaging examples of biopsy-proven cases aims to improve our knowledge and to determine when it would be appropriate to include it in the differential diagnosis.
