A 23-year-old man presented with a 6-week history of a left breast mass. Mammography and ultrasonography confirmed a 1.1 x 0.7-cm mass suggestive of breast cancer. An excisional biopsy revealed Rosai-Dorfman disease of the breast. As illustrated by this case, extranodal Rosai-Dorfman disease can mimic breast cancer. Surgical resection is considered appropriate treatment for this condition.

    Background: Carbon marking of the biopsy site and needle track following stereotactic breast biopsy in nonpalpable mammography-detected lesions provides for safe and accurate localization for subsequent surgical excision. No significant complications of carbon marking have been reported to date....

    The clinical significance of isolated radial scars (RS) diagnosed on core needle biopsy (CNB) remains unclear. By determining the pathologic concordance rate, we sought to define the indications for surgical excision for RS diagnosed on CNB. Between January 1994 and December 2007, 38 RS were...

    Wide local excision (WLE) is an operation to remove a lump in patient's breast cancerous tissues with a small amount of surrounding normal tissues and is done under general anaesthetic. Excision biopsy (EB) is an operation done to remove entire area of suspicious tissue/lipoma from an area of...
