Abstract

Soft fibromas are benign skin lesions that primarily occur in the neck, axillae, and groin locations. The occurrence of soft fibroma lesions in the nipple is extremely rare. Herein, we present two cases of soft fibroma of the nipple, which occurred in a 51-year-old woman (Case 1) and a 32-year-old woman (Case 2). The mammographic and ultrasonographic features of each case are described in this report. Mammography revealed an oval-shaped isodense mass in Case 1 and an irregular-shaped isodense mass in Case 2. On ultrasonography, Case 1 showed an oval-shaped hypoechoic mass with increased vascularity, whereas Case 2 presented a microlobulated, irregular-shaped, iso- to hypo-echoic mass with subtly increased vascularity at the stalk. In both cases, surgical excision was performed and pathological examination revealed soft fibroma.
