Abstract

The mammogram (MMG) of a 65-year-old woman showed a densely calcified mass. Histology from percutaneous core biopsy was consistent with osteosarcoma. Histology from a wide local excision confirmed mammary osteosarcoma without any epithelial or phyllodes component. Review of the patient's history showed that patient had 3 previous MMGs and a percutaneous core biopsy of a calcified lesion 4 years prior. The histology at that time showed metaplastic bone formation in mesenchymal tissue with no evidence of malignancy. This report of an extremely rare primary mammary osteosarcoma has documented the origin of this tumour from normal tissue of the breast as evidenced by the serial histology.
