Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the spectrum of sonographic findings in pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia (PASH) of the breast when it presents as a tumoral mass with pathologic correlation. Breast sonogram studies of 13 patients with 13 pathologically proven PASH lesions were retrospectively reviewed. The morphologic characteristics of the lesions as seen on ultrasound were evaluated and correlated with histopathologic findings. Sonography demonstrated most lesions, 11 of 13, to be hypoechoic in echotexture. One lesion was isoechoic in echotexture, also demonstrating small internal cysts, and one was predominantly hyperechoic. Two of the 11 hypoechoic lesions also demonstrated a complex heterogeneous pattern with a central hypoechoic area and a peripheral echogenic rim. All lesions were oval in shape with the long axis of the lesion parallel to the chest wall. None of the lesions demonstrated posterior acoustic shadowing. PASH lesions of the breast have a varied sonographic appearance. Knowledge of the spectrum of morphologic features shown on sonography can be helpful in the diagnosis of this entity.
