Adenomyoepithelioma of the breast is an unusual tumor characterized by biphasic proliferation of both epithelial and myoepithelial cells. Although most of these tumors have a benign course, a small number of malignant lesions have been reported in the literature. Adenomyoepithelioma is also characterized by propensity for local recurrence. Therefore, the sufficiency of initial surgery plays very important role in the management of these tumors. Due to the potential to malignant transformation and high risk of local recurrence, totally excision with wide margins should be performed in surgical treatment of these tumors. In this paper, three cases of adenomyoepithelioma of the breast with different clinical presentations and radiological findings were reported.
