Abstract

Fibromatosis of the breast is extremely uncommon, accounting for less than 0.2% of all breast tumors. It mimics features typical of breast cancer because it often presents with a movable firm painless mass and mammographically appears as an irregular high-density spiculated mass. On sonography it most frequently appears as an irregular hypoechoic spiculated mass with posterior acoustic shadowing. We report a particularly unusual case of fibromatosis of the breast.
