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.
