  Idiopathic granulomatosus mastitis (IGM) is chronic breast lesion that can mimic breast carcinoma and breast abscess. In this article, we presented a case of IGM and reviewed the etiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of this breast disorder. A 32-years old patient suffered from a painful tumor in the upper lateral quadrant of the left breast. A histopathologist diagnosed idiopathic granulomatous mastitis after breast-conserving surgery. All blood (biochemical and immunological) tests and test on tuberculosis were negative. The diagnosis of IGM can be challenging for surgeons, radiologists, and pathologists because it can be mistaken for breast carcinoma and breast abscess.
  Key words: Granulomatous Mastitis; Breast Neoplasms
