In this case report a patient treated with anticoagulant therapy will be described. She suddenly developed tumours in both breasts. On the mammogram multiple tumours were recognisable well defined with some central lucencies (fat). One tumour was excised and the pathologist diagnosed necrotic fat tissue. After 1 year some of the tumours have been disappeared, the others were in regression. Usually this type of tumours due to fat necrosis will disappear. In those cases surgical treatment is not necessary.
