Pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia (PASH) of the breast is a benign lesion that can present as a palpable nodule or as an incidental finding in breast biopsies. The development of PASH is subject to hormonal influence and is most commonly seen in premenopausal woman. Imaging findings are indistinguishable from those of the more common type of fibroadenoma, and they are categorized as BIRADS type 3 lesions (probably benign lesions). Their benign condition and behavior compared with other similar cases, allows the recommendation that surgical excision be avoided, and the patients monitored with periodic follow-up. Here we report a case of PASH presenting in a 41-years-old woman who had breast mass which was sent for intra-operative frozen-section procedure by surgery to our pathology laboratory.
