Mammography showed a high-density mass, and breast ultrasonography showed well-demarcated, highly abundant blood flow and a cystic lesion (Figure 1).
The mass was categorized BIRADS4 in breast ultrasonography. Breast MRI revealed heterogeneous enhancement with 3.5 x 5 cm of inflammatory area at the left breast upper outer quadrant.
