Abstract

Fibroadenoma is the most commonly diagnosed benign tumour in adolescents and young women. Squamous metaplasia and prominent myxoid degeneation with associated ischaemia infarction is not a common finding without history of trauma in fibroadenoma. We report a 16 year old unmarried female which posed a diagnostic dilemma due to presence of unusual histopathological findings, which is sparsly reported in English literature.

Keywords: Breast, Fibroadenoma, Infarction, Squamous metaplasia, Myxoid degeneration.
