Özet

Nipple retraction is difficult to diagnose radiologically and extremely worrisome for patients. It occurs most commonly due to pathologies such as previous mastitis or an infiltrative malignancy. With this in mind, the goal of this study was to differentiate benign from malignant lesions of nipple retraction, using the differential characteristics of retroareolar area stiffness, observed by means of the new technological modality of ultrasound elastography (USE).
