Abstract

Report about 82 women with inflammatory breast diseases, who were hospitalized during january 1988 and december 1993. 37 women had a puerperal mastitis, 39 women a non-puerperal mastitis and 6 had perimamillary abscesses. In 35 (42.7%) of the 82 patients abscesses occurred. The different etiology and bacteriology as well as resulting treatment guidelines are discussed. In the treatment of puerperal mastitis, staphylococcus effective penicillins keep the first place. The therapy of non-puerperal mastitis consists in prolactin inhibiting drugs and broad spectrum antibiotics. In abscesses and fistulas surgical treatment is necessary, the same in recurrences. If the process is suspicious for breast cancer diagnostic excision is to perform.
