Abstract: Inflammatory breast lesions have radiologic features that often mimic those of malignancy. Infective mastitis is the most common condition that may be indistinguishable clinically from carcinomatous mastitis. In the last article, inflammatory conditions caused by immunological mechanisms including Chug Strauss, Amyloidosis, Wegener's Granulomatosis, Sarcoidosis and Diabetic Mastopathy were discussed. The present article will present three categories of inflammatory disease of the breast: those caused by atypical infections, vascular disease and a further group in which the cause is unknown (pathogenetically unclassified). These less common forms of inflammatory breast disease constitute an even greater diagnostic dilemma and always require biopsy.
