Abstract

Spontaneous hemorrhage in the breast is rare. It can result from anticoagulant therapy and blood dyscrasias or thrombocytopenias associated with certain drug therapies or diseases such as leukemia. Spontaneous hemorrhage in the breast has also been reported during periods of acute hypertension and when breast cancer invades and erodes local arteries. Pseudoaneurysms can be the cause or the sequela of breast hemorrhage. If left untreated, however, hemorrhage can recur. Radiologists can play a vital role both in the diagnosis and treatment of pseudoaneurysms of the breast.
