Abstract

 Background: GIGANTOMASTIA is a BREAST disorder marked by exaggerated rapid growth of the BREASTs, generally bilaterally. Since this disorder is very rare and has been reported only in sparse case reports its etiology has yet to be fully established. Treatment is aimed at improving the clinical and psychological symptoms and reducing the treatment side effects; however, the best therapeutic option varies from case to case.Case Presentation: The present report described a case of gestational GIGANTOMASTIA in a 30-year-old woman, gravida 2, parity 1, 17 week pregnant admitted to Pars Hospital, Tehran, IRAN, on May 2014. The patient was admitted to hospital at week 17 of pregnancy, although her BREASTs initially had begun to enlarge from the first trimester.The patient developed HYPERCALCEMIA in her 32nd week of pregnancy. The present report followed this patient from DIAGNOSIS until the completion of treatment.Conclusion: Although gestational GIGANTOMASTIA is a rare condition, its timely prognosis and careful examination of some conditions like hyperprolactinemia and HYPERCALCEMIA is essential in successful management of this condition.
