AbstractAbstract PDF
Diabetic mastopathy is an unusual fibroinflammatory breast lesion that is characteristically presented in premenopausal women with long-standing diabetes with multiple microvascular complications. This patient was a 49-year-old postmenopausal woman with diabetic nephropathy, neuropathy, and retinopathy. Although palpable mass was detected on the left breast, an ultrasonography could not distinguish it from breast cancer. Excisional biopsy was conducted. Histological findings indicated diabetic mastopathy with keloid-like fibrosis, perivascular lymphocytic infiltration, and lymphocytic lobulitis without evidence of malignancy. After excision, there has been no recurrence until now.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Methimazole-induced agranulocytosis is a rare, but critical side effect that should be recognized as soon as possible since it may induce a life-threatening condition when it was overlooked. Histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis is also called Kikuchi's lymphadenitis, and this is a rare form of lymphadenitis with a self-limited clinical course and this illness is accompanied by cervical lymph node enlargement, fever and malaise. We recently experienced a patient with methimazole-induced agranulocytosis and Graves' disease, and this was accompanied by Kikuchi's disease; the patient presented with sore throat and multiple enlarged cervical lymph nodes. To the best of our knowledge, there is no previous report on methimazole-induced agranulocytosis combined with Kikuchi's disease. Therefore, we report here on this very rare case along with a brief review of the relevant literature.
