Breast nodularity and ulceration: diffuse dermal angiomatosis a corticosteroid responsive disease
Published Web Locationhttps://doi.org/10.5070/D32211033149
Diffuse dermal angiomatosis of the breast (DDAB) is an uncommon ulcerative angiomatosis, which occurs in middle aged women with large pendulous breasts, a history of cigarette smoking, and risk factors for atherosclerosis. Based on its rarity, no well-defined therapeutic regimen has been elucidated. We report a case of DDAB in a woman with no history of smoking or radiographic evidence of occluded vasculature who presented with ulceration and pain-associated breast nodularity. She had a complete reproducible response to oral corticosteroids.
