Periductal Mastisis

It is one of the masticosis that occurs in the non-breastfeeding breast. It is a type of inflammation that starts around the breast nipple and develops around the milk ducts. The vast majority are associated with smoking. It is estimated that the area develops due to the fact that the area is a suitable ground for infections due to the destruction of the milk ducts behind the breast nipple. 

At the beginning, it is possible to treat the disease only with the use of antibiotics. If an abscess is detected in ultrasound guided the breast examination or similar imaging studies, abscess drainage are required.
