Background: A breast adenomyoepithelioma is an uncommon tumor characterized by the presence of epithelial and myoepithelial cells. Case Report: We describe a 47-year-old woman who presented with a right breast mass of four-year duration. An examination of the breasts revealed two masses in the right inner quadrant of the right breast measuring 1 x 1 cm and 2 x 2 cm in dimension. A mammogram favored a lesion highly suspicious of malignancy, suggesting further examination. An ultrasound examination confirmed the mammography and a biopsy was subsequently performed. A biopsy revealed findings suggestive of duct adenoma. The tumor was excised, and the specimen was sent for histopathological examination. The histopathological findings were consistent with adenomyoepithelioma. The patient was discharged one day after surgery and did not present any complaints.
Conclusion: Although most adenomyoepitheliomas have a benign course, it is essential for clinicians to identify these tumors, as the radiologic and cytologic characteristics can mimic malignant lesions. A definitive diagnosis can be made after a histopathologic examination, and tumor excision may be helpful in preventing recurrence or malignant change.
