Abstract

Axillary lymph nodes have infrequently been reported as sites for benign inclusions, usually consisting of nevus cells, benign breast tissue, or epidermal inclusion cysts. The most common types of benign lymph node inclusion, however, are Mullerian and are typically seen in the pelvis or abdomen. We report a case of benign mammary glandular inclusions in an axillary lymph node of a 60-year-old woman who underwent a modified radical mastectomy for infiltrating duct carcinoma. The importance of recognizing the benign nature of these inclusions is emphasized, as a misdiagnosis of metastatic carcinoma would have major therapeutic and prognostic implications.
