Granulomatous mastitis (GM) is a rare, chronic inflammatory breast disease of unknown etiology that can mimic malignancy on clinical examination. The cytological features of GM, though consists of epithelioid cells, giant cells and inflammatory cells is not specific and can mimic many other conditions.
