Myxomas are benign mesenchymal tumors, which rarely develop in the breast. Histologically, stellate, round, and spindle-shaped cells with vesicular nuclei and scant cytoplasm are scattered in the myxoid stroma. We present a case of this rare type of breast tumor with sonographic and mammographic findings.
