Fat necrosis - breast


Another case to bring home the point that fat necrosis in the breast can and does change with time. Do not let the early peripheral calcifications confuse you with possible DCIS. Don't be alarmed by the protean appearance of fat necrosis on ultrasound; invariably the history and mammogram will guide you. The lucencies are invariably seen on previous mammograms if they are available and good quality.

Compare with case rID 18655.
