Rareness and varied presentation of IGM makes it difficult to standardize treatment protocol.

Patients and Methods: In this study, a retrospective review of 15 patients with IGM between January and December was performed based on clinical, radiological, and pathological findings; follow-up information and recurrence were obtained from records. Results: The median age of presentation was 30 years age range: 24—

Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis IGM is an uncommon benign disorder of the breast that can mimic two frequent breast disorders, breast carcinoma and breast abscess. In this report, we present two patients seen in a community teaching hospital over a period of one year, diagnosed with IGM after histological evaluation. One patient responded well to immunosuppressive therapy, but the second patient required bilateral mastectomy due to the severe and recurrent nature of the disease. IGM is a disorder that should be considered in the evaluation of women who present with painful breast disease.
