Resumen

HORVATH, Eleonora et al. QUISTES RETRO-AREOLARES EN ADOLESCENTES: ASPECTOS CLÍNICOS Y ULTRASONOGRAFICOS. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2007, vol.13, n.3, pp.122-126. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082007000300004.

Retroareolar cysts are common in pre and postmenarchic girls. Boys are rarely diagnosed with this condition. They correspond to cystic dilatations of the accessory mammary glands that open along with a sebaceous gland at the areola and can be single or multiple, uni or bilateral, palpable or incidental findings on ultrasound. They have variable morphology, thin walls, anechogenic content, sometimes calcic sediment can be observed in their lumen. Infected cysts present enlarged, hypervascularized walls; their content is echogenic, avascular and the adjacent tissue is hyperechogenic, with increased vascularization at color Doppler. If not treated, may become retroareolar abscesses. Inflamatory complications are treated with anti-inflamatory drugs and/or antibiotics. No diagnostic biopsy or puncture aspiration is required, since they are spontaneously drained at the areola. In order to appropriately advise patients and families, it is necessary to have knowledge of both the medical and the ultrasonographic aspects of them and their complications
