[edit] Discussion of Fibroadenolipoma

  • Fibroadenolipoma is AKA hamartoma of the breast
  • Benign proliferation of fibrous, glandular, and fatty tissue surrounded by a thin capsule of connective tissue.
  • "BREAST WITHIN A BREAST"
  • Majority of these lesions occur in women over 35 years of age.
  • When the lesion is asymptomatic and demonstrates a typical mammographic appearance, the patient can be followed up mammographically without the need for US or intervention.

[edit] Imaging Findings for Fibroadenolipoma

  • At mammography, fibroadenolipoma are typically well-circumscribed, round to oval masses containing both fat and soft-tissue density with a thin, radiopaque pseudocapsule.
  • At US, a sharply defined, heterogeneous oval mass is seen, or the lesion may manifest as normal glandular tissue.
