Variable chest wall disorders include hemorrhage, inflammation and a tumor on the chest wall. Especially in females, abnormal anterior chest wall findings can appear as breast lesions due to the anatomic relationship between the chest wall and the breast. Sonography is the first diagnostic tool to utilize for chest wall disorders and has an important role for the differential diagnosis. In this study, we introduce sonographic findings of the various chest wall disorders that are discovered incidentally during an examination for a palpable mass or pain in the breast. We also describe sonographic findings that additionally performed of sonography-guided core needle biopsy.
