FERNANDEZ SARABIA, Pedro Antonio; RODRIGUEZ ALBERTERIS, Yamilka  and  SANZ PUPO, Nitza Julia. Big Galactocele. Rev Cubana Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2013, vol.39, n.3, pp. 260-265. ISSN 0138-600X.

The galactocele is cystic dilatation of a duct during lactation. It is considered the most common breast lesion found during this stage; although it occurs most frequently after its cessation is when milk is retained and accumulates in the breast. A case of a large galactocele during lactation in an Angolan patient aged 28 is reported in this paper. Her solution was achieved with surgical treatment. The aim of this paper is to present, for teaching purposes, some aspects of this common benign lesion, but the size and dimensions do not usually reach thoswe of the case presented here.

Keywords : galactocele; breast cystic dilatation.
