Bilateral eosinophilic mastitis: an uncommon unheard entity

, : Bilateral eosinophilic mastitis: an uncommon unheard entity. Breast Disease 35(1): 33-36

We are reporting a case of bilateral eosinophilic mastitis which is rare and hardly heard. It is a mimicker of carcinoma breast both clinically & radiologically. A 30 years old non diabetic female presented with bilateral breast lumps with history of rhinitis off & on and peripheral eosinophilia. Mammography was suspicious while ultrasonography was diagnostic of bilateral mastitis. Aspiration cytology exhibited inflammatory lesion rich in eosinophils. Histopathology revealed the diagnosis of eosinophilic mastitis. Eosinophilic infiltration of the breast is a rare manifestation of tissue involvement in peripheral eosinophilia and bilateralism is even rarer.

The comparative efficacy of Abate (temephos), malathion and Baygon (propoxur) against larval A. aegypti and C. quinquefasciatus was determined in the laboratory. To A. aegypti, temephos was more acutely lethal by a factor of 5000-12 000 than malat...
