The article reports on three cases of mammary fibromatosis with presentations that seem to be carcinoma. An 18-year-old West Indian woman had a two-month history of a lump in the left breast. A 25-year-old Caucasian woman had a painless lump in the right breast. The third case involved a 59-year-old woman in 1989 who had a recurring mammary fibromatosis.

    Mucinous carcinoma of the breast is one of the rarer forms of intramammary cancer, often presenting as a lobulated, fairly well circumscribed mass on mammography, sonography, and gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging. It accounts for 1% to 7% of all breast cancers and generally carries...

    Comprising less than 1% of invasive carcinomas of the breast, metaplastic carcinomas are a heterogeneous group of malignant tumors in which part or all of the carcinomatous epithelium is transformed into a nonglandular (metaplastic) growth process. Metaplastic carcinomas with a low-grade spindle...

    Low-grade fibromatosis-like spindle cell carcinoma is a rare tumor in the breast, and represents a variant of the very heterogeneous group of metaplastic carcinomas of the breast. These tumors warrant distinction because of their resemblance to pure fibromatosis, their propensity for local...
