A rare tumor of the male breast “angiolipoma”. Case report and review of literature

AIM: Angiolipoma is uncommon lesion in the breast and has clinical importance due to the potential of confusion with malignant breast lesions. To date, there is no defined diagnosis and treatment algorithm for breast angiolipomas. We aim to contribute to the literature for the diagnosis and treatment of angiolipomas with this case report and literature review. CASE REPORT: A 29-year-old male patient presented with a newly emerged palpable mass in the right breast. Physical examination revealed a palpable mass in the lower inner quadrant of the right breast without any presence of skin changes, nipple discharge or palpable axillary lymph nodes. The lesion was found to be 3 cm in diameter and showed minimal vascularization on Doppler Ultrasound examination. Surgical excision of the lesion was performed and the lesion was diagnosed as angiolipoma. CONCLUSION: Angiolipomas of the breast in male are rare pathological entities and must always be considered during differential diagnosis, as it can be confused clinically, radiologically and pathologically with other lesions, especially with
malignant lesions
