Dr. Pratiksha Badapurkar | Dr. Ajay Jungare | Dr. Suwarna Patil | Dr. Dilip Sarate

Abstract: Introduction: Hydatid cyst in the breast is very rare and unusual for its location. Reported incidence of hydatid cyst in the breast is 0.27% in the literature. Objective: Preoperative diagnosis may be performed using fine - needle aspiration cytology, which also minimizes the risk of intraoperative rupture. Case report: We report the case of a 38 - year - old woman who was diagnosed with a hydatid cyst in breast using fine - needle aspiration cytology before surgery. Conclusion: Fine - needle aspiration cytology is an accurate and safe technique that can allow surgery to be avoided, especially in older patients or patients with high surgical risk.
