Mammographic features of hidradenitis suppurativa axillaris

Hidradenitis suppurativa Research

Author(s): Kalisher L, Dembner A

The mammographic features of hidradenitis suppurativa axillaris, a common clinical entity, are described for the first time in this report. Lucent axillary masses with a small central density appear to be a pathognomonic radiographic finding. Other entities seen on mammography such as lipomas, lucent galactoceles, traumatic oil cysts, axillary hibernomas and benign lymph nodes, should not be confused with hidradenitis suppurative axillaris.
