Abstract

Lipogranulomas of the mammary glands: diagnosis and treatment. Steatonecrosis of the mammary gland is necrosis of its adipose tissue, followed by replacement with scar tissue. Lipogranuloma is known as a benign inflammatory process, necrosis of breast fat occurs due to iatrogenic breast trauma. Most often, fatty necrosis is seen in women with large breasts – in women with small breasts, it develops much less often. It is important to diagnose lipogranulomas because it can often mimic breast cancer. Fat necrosis of the breast is a common pathological condition, with a wide variety of presentations on mammography, ultrasound and MRI. The incidence of fatty necrosis of the breast is estimated at 0.6%, representing 2.75% of all breast lesions
