A rare case of a recurrent atypical adenomyoepithelial tumor of the breast: Case report
Introduction: Adenomyoepithelial tumors of the breast are very rare tumors comprising of - fibroepithelial and myoepithelial components.
Presentation of the case: We present the case of a 66 years old lady who presented with a right breast lump 5 cm in size, diagnosed as an atypical adenomyoepithelioma who underwent successful excision and returned two and half years later with a recurrence.
Discussion: These tumors present a diagnostic dilemma needing histopathology for definitive diagnosis. Recurrence is not uncommon.
Conclusion: Adenomyoepitheliomas demand regular surveillance for early detection of any recurrence.
