Adenomyoepithelioma is an uncommon primary breast tumor characterized by a biphasic proliferation of epithelial and myoepithelial cells which was first described by Hampperl in 1970. The largest reported series had been by Tavassoli (1991) who in reported 27 cases. Most of the others have been one or two case reports. Except for two in male patients [Tamura et al., 1993, Berna et al., 1997] all the reported cases have... Read more.
