Abstract

The term adenomyoepithelioma has been applied to a broad range of biphasic lesions composed of epithelial and myoepithelial cells. They show diverse morphologic patterns due to the admixture of the two components which may lead to a diagnosis of malignancy. We present a case of bilateral adenomyoepithelioma in a lactating woman who had a concomitant breast abscess. A 25-year-old lady presented with bilateral breast lumps since 2 years, with acute pain. With a clinical diagnosis of an abscess, superimposed on fibrocystic disease, drainage of abscess, and lumpectomy was performed. The clinicopathological features of this entity are discussed.
