DOI : 10.5146/jcpath.2017.07 Aim: Ceroid granulomas are unusual and interesting lesions that are formed from auto-oxidation and ceroid transformation of substrates accumulating in macrophages, in case of relative lack of biological antioxidants. Diagnostic features of ceroid granulomas diagnosed in a 39-years-old woman are represented.

Case: Ceroid granuloma was diagnosed at the tru-cut bioposy of a mass ocurring after a surgical operation for fibrocystic changes and evaluated as BI-RADS5, radiologically. There are few cases described in the endometrium, endometriotic cyst wall, ovary, cervix uteri, placenta, bile duct and breast.

Conclusion: Although ceroid granulomas are benign lesions, they can mimic malignancy clinically and/or radiologically. Anahtar Kelimeler : Ceroid, Granulomatous mastitis
