Case contributed by Dr Garth Kruger

Patient Data

Gender: Female
Ultrasound

See the loss of the pseudocapsule on the right of the lesion. It blends into the surrounding breast parenchyma.

Case Discussion

This lesion was called a fibroadenoma. The loss of the pseudocapsule warrants biopsy. Don't just accept this is a fibroadenoma without tissue sampling.

This case can also sometimes be classified as BIRADS 0 since the mammographic images are not available. Or else it is BIRADS IV
