We report a case of 46-year-old female patient who presented with a breast lump and was diagnosed as a case of idiopathic granulomatous mastitis. Patient was put on steroid therapy and her lesion completely disappeared, both clinically and radiologically. When we stopped the steroid therapy, the mass again recurred and patient had to undergo lumpectomy with no recurrence in follow-up of 1 year.
