Abstract

Infiltrating syringomatous adenoma of the nipple is a rare neoplasm of the breast. Syringomatous adenoma of the nipple is often misdiagnosed because clinical examination and mammographic findings of syringomatous adenoma of the nipple mimic carcinoma. Despite its benign behavior, syringomatous adenoma of the nipple usually shows infiltrative expansile proliferation into adjacent tissue and underlying breast tissue. Up until now, to our knowledge, there has been no reported case of regional or distant metastasis. Histologically and clinically, syringomatous adenoma of the nipple is often confused with tubular carcinoma as well as low-grade adenosquamous carcinoma of the breast. Special attention given to this tumor by pathologists and clinicians can avoid misdiagnosis and unnecessary treatment.
