Abstract

Two cases of the sonographic appearance of angiolipoma of the breast are described. Angiolipoma is a benign variant of lipoma that is rare in the breast. Histologically, it contains mature lipocytes intermixed with a proliferation of thin-walled capillaries. Noninfiltrating and infiltrating varieties are the two types of angiolipoma. The two cases document another benign entity that should be considered when a circumscribed mass is encountered on breast ultrasonography.
