Mycetoma of breast
Keywords:breast, mycetoma, FNAC
Mycetoma is a chronic subcutaneous localized infection characterized by the triad of swelling, discharging sinuses and discharge of grains that may be caused by bacteria (actinomycetoma) or fungi (eumycetoma). Although it most commonly involves the foot, lower leg or hand, involvement of the head or back may also occur. The incidence is low in other parts of the body such as breast because of the lower risk of trauma as the initiating factor. We report an adult woman with single nodules in the breast on FNAC chronic granulomatous decease and later proved to be mycetoma after excisional biopsy.
