Lactating adenoma

 

Lactating adenomas usually occur in patients who are young and are either pregnant or nursing. 

The lesion is sharply delineated from the surrounding breast tissue.  It has a lobulated arrangement

with fibrous bands separating the lobules.  The ductal epithelial cells are distended with secretory

material within the cytoplasm which simply appears as intracytoplasmic vacuoles.
