PMID:  16024249     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Fasciolosis is an uncommon disease in this region, as are parasitic infections of the breast. This report describes a 56-year-old man with a previous history of liver abscess presenting with a painful breast mass. He underwent a mastectomy and is well. The pathological findings revealed chronic granulomatous mastitis with Fasciola spp. ova. The literature on this very rare condition is reviewed.
