Myofibroblastoma (MFB) is an extremely rare benign tumour that can arise in various organs, but commonly in the breast. Myofibroblastoma of the breast is a rare benign stromal tumour seen predominantly in men in older age. The gross appearance is that of a well-circumscribed nodule, characteristically small, seldom exceeding 3 cm. Furthermore, myofibroblastoma can arise in extra mammary sites, along the milk-line. . Radiological imaging is nonspecific in MFB, and pathological examination of needle biopsy or surgically resected specimen is necessary for the diagnosis. Surgery is recommended and considered curative without additional treatment; however, patients should be followed-up. One case of MFB of the breast is described here since it is a very rare case and pre operative diagnosis is challenging.
