A 56-year-old woman who came in for screening mammography was found to have extensive unilateral calcification of her left breast which had developed since her previous screening mammogram. The calcification had a ductal and lobular appearance. Possible known etiologies are discussed, but these do not explain the appearance in this case, implying that the cause is idiopathic.
