Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a case of an intraparenchymal leiomyoma of the breast with description of the radiologic, histopathologic, and immunohistochemical findings. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of an intraparenchymal leiomyoma of the breast diagnosed by core needle biopsy and the 22nd case described in the literature. In addition, we review the literature on this uncommon breast neoplasm.
