Mammary tuberculosis: report on 52 cases

, : Mammary tuberculosis: report on 52 cases. Postgraduate Medical Journal 78(921): 422-424

Fifty two cases of tuberculosis of the breast encountered over a 15 year period and accounting for 3% of all breast lesions are reported. The classic presentation was a breast lump with associated sinus in 39%, isolated breast lump in 23%, sinus without lump in 12%, and tender nodularity in 23% of the patients. Associated axillary lymphadenopathy was found in 41%. Diagnosis was confirmed by fine needle aspiration cytology or histology in all the cases and antitubercular therapy formed the mainstay of treatment.

The highest affinity for the enzyme was recorded with the nitriles, the lowest one with...
