In brief: Incredibly rare
Some types of tissue breakdown look like vasculitis such as tissue necrosis related to hypercoagulable state induced by circulating anticoagulants or related to coumadin (warfarin).
This is a very tricky problem and if true needs a sophisticated coagulation workup including lupus anticoagulant, russell viper venom test, protein c, s, leiden factor 5 and additinal tests. See the doc!if breast is abnormal.
