Abstract

Calcifying fibrous pseudotumor (CFP) is classified as a benign fibrous lesion, and is a rare pathologic entity. Previous reports have described CFPs in the extremities, chest wall, pleura, scrotum, mediastinum, neck, and visceral peritoneum. We present the first reported case of a CFP in the breast. CFP should be considered in the differential diagnosis for patients presenting with coarse indeterminate calcifications of the breast.
