Diabetic mastopathy - clinical and mammographic findings
Fibrous mastopathy is a condition seen mainly in premenopausal, insulin-dependent diabetics. The condition simulates breast cancer and is often poorly recognised.
One of the main reasons for reporting this well-described entity is to make
radiologists and surgeons more aware of this condition, thereby reducing unnecessary
morbidity by establishing a correct diagnosis more efficiently, and differentiating
it from breast carcinoma.
