Ayla Pelleg, Kirangowda Pombarahalli Varadaraju, Swati Datta


Idiopathic Granulomatous Mastitis (IGM) is a benign inflammatory breast disease.  A definite etiology of IGM is still unknown.  IGM classically presents as an unilateral, painful breast mass in women who are 30-40 years of age.  Consensus treatment guidelines do not exist for the management of IGM.  In this case report, we present a patient with IGM who was refractory to Prednisone and started on Dapsone as an alternative treatment. This case report highlights the use of Dapsone and the need for further research of IGM treatment modalities.
