Radial scar with microcalcification mammographic-pathologic correlation: case report.

Abstract

Radial scar, a descriptive term for a pathologic lesion, is composed of central area of fibroelastosis and distorted ducts, and peripheral zone of intraductal hyperplasia. This lesion often presents as a spiculated lesion, sometimes with microcalcifications, on mammography which may mimic malignancy such as tubular carcinoma. We report a case of radial scar with clustered microcalcifications incidentally found in the screened mammogram.
