Breast lesions are rare in childhood and they require a tailored diagnostic and management approach, also considering the load of anxiety associated, both for young patients and their parents. After clinical evaluation, imaging is always helpful in confirming normal findings, for instance in case of asymmetric breast bud, and moreover it is mandatory when abnormality is suspected. We describe a rare case of 11-years-old female with a retroareolar palpable mass of left breast, in which we performed US, MRI and core needle biopsy in order to make diagnosis of fibroadenoma with epithelial hyperplasia associated to pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia (PASH). detection and correct diagnosis of young adolescent’s breast masses is mandatory and quite tricky since differential diagnosis of each lesion can vary from malignancy to fibrocystic changes in normal breast bud. Moreover identification of PASH is significant since it can grow and locally recur.
