Pleomorphic Adenoma of Breast, Unusual in its Location

Kshitija Wajekar; Silky Patel; Priti Trivedi; Dhaval Jetly.

Abstract
Aim: Pleomorphic adenoma (PA) is a common benign mixed tumor of salivary gland. It rarely involves the breast and due to limited yield of tissue samples on fine needle aspiration and core biopsies, it poses a diagnostic difficulty to the pathologist.
Case Report: Here we report a rare case, with clinical suspicion of malignancy of breast in 60 year old lady, which was diagnosed as pleomorphic adenoma on histopathology.
Discussion: PA is grossly well circumscribed and on microscopy shows both epithelial and myoepithelial cells embedded in chondromyxoid stroma. With adequate sampling, it is not difficult to diagnose this rare entity of breast on histopathology.
Conclusion: As PA mimicks malignancy, it is important to identify this benign entity in breast and prevent radical mastectomy surgery in these patients.

Key words: Pleomorphic adenoma;Breast
