MURTA, Eddie Fernando Candido et al. Sclerosing granular cell tumor of the breast simulating fibromatosis. Rev. Bras. Ginecol. Obstet. [online]. 1998, vol.20, n.2, pp. 114-117. ISSN 0100-7203. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-72031998000200010.
We describe a sclerosing granular cell tumor of the breast simulating fibromatosis. Clinically it simulates carcinoma because of its fibrous consistency and fixation to the greater pectoral muscle. The mammograms showed a rounded density with a slightly irregular margin in the upper, inner and outer quadrant of the left breast. Ultrasound showed a poorly defined solid lesion disrupting fascial planes. Clinical, radiological histological and therapeutica aspects are discussed.
