DOI : 10.31067/0.2020.273 Adenomyoepithelioma (AME); is a rare tumor usually seen in breast tissue but will also be detected in salivary glands, skin and the lungs which are characterized by biphasic proliferation of epithelial and myoepithelial cells. Although it has a benign nature, it has high recurrence rates when it is resected with an inadequate surgical margin. A previously healthy 33-year-old 12-week pregnant patient admitted to the outpatient clinic with a palpable mass in her left breast. Ultrasonographic (US) examination revealed a BIRADS 4b lesion in the left breast and a core-needle biopsy was performed. The mass was totally excised due to suspicious histopathological findings. Final pathology was reported as adenomyoepithelioma. In the first year of postoperative follow-up, no local recurrence was detected in the patient.
