Summary: The chronic granulomatous mastitis is a rare condition that affects women in their childbear- ing years, with clinical, mammographic, eco- graphic and hystological characteristics that ressemble a breast carcinoma.

The purpose of this review is to establish the differential diagno- sis with breast carcinoma and the best approach for this challenging pathology.
