Abstract

NAZARIO, Afonso Celso Pinto et al. Leiomyoma of the breast: a case report. Sao Paulo Med. J. [online]. 1995, vol.113, n.5, pp. 992-994. ISSN 1516-3180.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-31801995000500006.

A rare case of leiomyoma of the breast is reported, with a discussion of the clinical aspects and of the differential diagnosis. Excluding tumors originating from the areolar-papillary complex and the skin, this neoplasm is extremely rare, with only 11 cases reported so far. The histogenesis of the lesion is still controversial.

Keywords : Leiomyoma of the breast.
