Abrikossoff’s Tumor (Granular Cell Tumor) of the Breast: A Case Report and Literature Review

Abrikossoff’s tumors can become a difficult diagnostic challenge for the physicians because of their clinical, mammographical, and sonographical aspects, mimicking a primary breast carcinoma.

We report of a healthy 31-year-old Bulgarian woman who presented to us for an assessment of a firm and thick palpable mass in the inferior medial quadrant of the left breast several months after giving birth. The ultrasonography (US) revealed a hypoechoic, nonhomogeneous solid mass (21/17 mm) with axillary lymphadenopathy. Wide local excision of the lesion was done. The final histologic evaluation confirmed the diagnose – benign granular cell tumor (GCT) of the breast with non-tumoral margins. At the one year follow up there was no evidence of a recurrent lesion. GCT is one of the rarest tumors of the breast. Correct recognition of granular cell tumor is crucial for an adequate therapeutical approach.
