Inflammatory pseudotumor of the breast (IPB) is a very rare condition. Literature reports a limited number of cases. Its pathogenesis is also a controversial issue. Within the scope of our study, a 65-year-old female patient, who had resection because of inflammatory pseudotumor of the breast, was evaluated. The patient presented to our clinic with complaints of a painless mass in her right breast. Imaging guided tru-cut biopsy was performed. The pathological findings following the tru-cut biopsy were consistent with inflammatory pseudotumor. Local excision was performed. There was no recurrence during the 24-month follow-ups.
