  • Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis associated with corynebacterium sp. Infection. Hawaii medical journal Stary, C. M., Lee, Y. S., Balfour, J. 2011; 70 (5): 99-101


    Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis (IGM) is a rare inflammatory condition of the breast. The etiology and treatments options of IGM remain controversial. Previous case reports have suggested that Corynebacterium sp., a gram-positive bacillus endogenous to the skin, may be associated with IGM. In the present report, we describe the first case of IGM with a positive culture for Corynebacterium sp. reported in the United States.
