Introduction: Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis (IGM) is a rare benign breast disease. The importance of this disease relies on its similar clinical manifestation to those of mammary carcinoma and a group of mastitis with other causes.

Case Report: The patient was a 32-year-old woman, that suddenly got fever, pain and swelling in left breast. In examination several masses were felt. Performed core needle biopsy reported IGM.

Conclusion: Similarity of clinical presentations and diagnostic tests to the other kinds of mastitis and malignancies may lead to misdiagnosis and mistreatment, which imposes socioeconomic and psychological burden to patients.
