Figure 3: Mucinous carcinoma diagnosed on image guided biopsy. (a) Mammogram (Rt MLO view) of a 34 yr old lady presenting with a recurrent palpable lump shows lobular high density mass in the upper outer quaderant. (Surgical clips are also seen). (b) Ultrasound shows a poorly defined, isoechoic mass lesion (marked by arrows). Palpation guided biopsy was reported as chronic inflammation, assessed as discordant with imaging findings. Repeat ultrasound guided biopsy correctly diagnosed it to be mucinous carcinoma.
