The pure type of MMC generally presents mild to moderate enhancement at the early phases, with centripetal tendency determining type 1 progressive curves, a feature demonstrated on Figure 4, or type 2 curve plateau Microscopically, it is formed by large mucin lakes surrounded by mucus-producing cancer cells. Because of different patterns of mammogram and ultrasound, both should be performed in all cases of MCB and in some equivocal cases breast MRI is of great value.
