sclerosing adenosis


Also found in: Encyclopedia.

scle·ros·ing ad·e·no·sis

a nodular, benign breast lesion occurring most frequently in relatively young women and consisting of hyperplastic distorted lobules of acinar tissue with increased collagenous stroma; the changes may be difficult to distinguish microscopically from carcinoma. Additionally, a benign nodular microscopic lesion of the prostate consisting of acinar tissue with increased stroma; the basal cell layer shows characteristic smooth muscle metaplasia.

Sclerosing adenosis is a benign condition of the breast in which extra tissue develops within the breast lobules.
AIDH and IDH are asymptomatic lesions that are detected incidentally on mammography or in the resection specimens of other lesions (fibrocystic change, sclerosing adenosis, fibroadenoma etc.
Some of these calcifications may be the result of radiation-induced sclerosing adenosis, a benign process in which fibrotic changes compress glandular tissue causing multiple calcifications.
Downgraded diagnoses included 3 cases (for 2 patients) of DCIS involving sclerosing adenosis that was mistaken for invasive ductal carcinoma, and 2 cases of atypical ductal hyperplasia that was overcalled as DCIS.
The case was diagnosed as sclerosing adenosis on FNAC, which was clinically suspected of carcinoma.

Sclerosing adenosis is a fibrocystic change that contains areas of lobular hyperplasia, or adenosis, interspersed with bands of connective tissue fibrosis.
