Objective: Our aim was to identify the predictive factors of degeneration of the fibrocystic mastopathy. Methods: This work is a retrospective survey of 111 observations of isolated fibrocystic mastopathies or associated to a breast cancer among 542 women admitted for tumor of the breast during one period of 13 active years from 1991 to 2003. The diagnosis has been gotten by anatomo-pathologic exam in 95,5% (106cas) on the operative piece and 4,5% (5cas) on a material of biopsy. Results: The fibrocystic mastopathy represented 30 % of the set of the benign tumors of the breast. They were associated to a breast cancer in 45 cases (40,5%). The isolated benign fibrocystic mastopathy was observed in 66 cases with a middle age of 37 years, whereas the shapes associated to a breast carcinoma were noted in 45 cases. The middle age was 53 years. The non proliferative fibrocystic mastopathy is the most frequent histological type and represent 54,6 % of the cases. The proliferative form with atypies was observed at 21 women (46,8%). The carcinoma the more frequently associated to the fibrocystic mastopathy was the infiltrating canalled carcinoma in 91% of cases, with a predominance of the II rank (SBR). Conclusion: The discovery of a mastopathy must search a luteal failure and risk factors of breast cancer notably a proliferative shape of mastopathy with atypies.
