To the best of our knowledge, this report describes the first case of axillary lipogranuloma in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in the light of mammographic and ultrasonographic findings of this rare entity.
Pathological examination confirmed the diagnosis as lipogranuloma (Figure 3).
Lipogranuloma or sclerosing lipogranuloma is known to be a tissue reaction to exogenous foreign bodies or endogenous lipids, and its etiology has not yet been clearly defined.
3) T-cell mediated immune responses were proposed as the mechanism responsible for the formation of primary lipogranuloma of the scrotum.
Histopathologically, lipogranuloma is characterized by multiple fat vacuoles surrounded by granulomatous tissue composed of multinucleated giant cells, epithelioid histiocytes, and fibrosis.
Based on all these findings, we assumed that the current case was of primary lipogranuloma of the axilla.

red blood cell, neutrophil, lymphocyte, and platelet morphology (recorded as normal or abnormal) on the peripheral blood smear; percentage cellularity on the core biopsy, as well as assessment for any evidence of specific features including lipogranulomas, epithelioid granulomas, fibrosis or fat atrophy, lymphoid aggregates, or increased mast cells.
Likewise, lipogranulomas were identified in 6% (6 of 101) of the cases of CVD and were also found in 4 of the 38 controls (11%).
Other more uncommon features, such as pseudomyeloproliferative disease, lipogranulomas, and ALIP, were also common to both CVD and control groups.

Prominent lipogranulomas may be seen in the testis, presumably as a reaction to sebaceous material leaked from the cyst contents (Figure 3, C).
