Adenolipoma - uncommon variant of hamartoma
25 yo F. 4cm rounded mobile breast lump
We see hamartomas quite frequently but this is the first adenolipoma I have come across.
Note its circumscription and the presence of essentally architecturally normal nodules of breast tissue set
in a framework of mature adipose tissue.
Acknowledgement: I am extremely grateful to my colleague, Dr Graeme Reid, for bringing this entity to my attention.
