Breast tuberculosis is an uncommon disease with nonspecific clinical, radiological, and histological findings. Investigations such as microscopy and culture are frequently negative, and diagnosis is frequently one of exclusion. We report a case of tuberculous breast abscess in a year-old female case of Carcinoma Maxilla on palliative radiochemotherapy.
Granulomatous mastitis is a very rare breast inflammatory disease of unknown origin that can clinically mimic carcinoma of the breast. The condition generally manifests as a distinct, firm to hard mass that may involve any part of the breast. The subareolar regions may be relatively spared.
Background: Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis IGM is a rare chronic inflammatory disease. Because of obscure etiology and diagnosis, its management remains a challenge. Rareness and varied presentation of IGM makes it difficult to standardize treatment protocol.
Idiopathic lobular granulomatous mastitis ILGM is a rare chronic inflammatory disease of the breast that can clinically mimic breast carcinoma. The most common clinical presentation is a firm unilateral, discrete breast mass, often associated with an inflammation of the overlying skin. Nipple retraction and even a sinus formation are present.

Granulomatous mastitis GM is a benign inflammatory breast disease of unknown origin that usually affects young women of childbearing age. The breast lesion is of variable size, usually unilateral, firm, ill defined, and mildy tender.

Granulomatous mastitis can be divided into idiopathic granulomatous mastitis also known as granular lobular mastitis  and granulomatous mastitis occurring as a rare secondary complication of a great variety of other conditions such as tuberculosis and other infections, sarcoidosis and granulomatosis with polyangiitis. Special forms of granulomatous mastitis occur as complication of diabetes. Some cases are due to silicone injection Silicone-induced granulomatous inflammation or other foreign body reactions.
Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis is a benign lesion of the mammary gland characterised by the presence of non-infectious inflammatory breast lesions limited to the lobules. We report twenty cases of idiopathic granulomatous mastitis IGM with a discussion of epidemiology, clinical and diagnostic features, treatment and progress of this pathological entity. A retrospective study of twenty cases compiled from a ten-year period, from pathological anatomy examinations carried out to investigate various breast pathologies.
