OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this study was to review the imaging features of mucocelelike breast lesions, correlate the mammographic and pathologic findings, and determine recommendations for management. CONCLUSION. Mucocelelike lesions are more common than previously reported and are likely to exhibit indeterminate calcifications on mammography. Diagnosis is most often made with Mammotome biopsy. A large number of patients have associated atypia or carcinoma. For patients with purely benign histologic findings at Mammotome biopsy, optimal management should be excisional biopsy to exclude associated malignancy.
