Myofibrolastoma of the breast (MFB) is a rare and benign stromal tumor. Although MFB is a benign entity, in radiologic evalu-ation, there is no specific diagnostic feature. Conventional breast imaging findings have been published before. Sonoelas-tography has been used as an imaging method that allows us to evaluate tissue stiffness in vivo and increases the specificity of B-mode ultrasonography in the discrimination of benign-malignant lesions. In this case report, it was shown that MFB is of high stiffness in shear wave elastography (SWE) evaluation. SWE findings of MFB, which is a benign lesion, have been described for the first time in the literature.
