Rarely found in mammal tissue, it mainly affects women, aged around 50 years, and clinically presents like a palpable mass occupying central breast quadrants. The treatment of choice is the extensive excision of the lesion. Local recidivisms is very frequent, and sometimes they could have malignant degeneration.
