Breast abscess is a common surgical condition . It is a collection of pus that has accumulated within a tissue because of an inflammatory process in response to either infectious process or foreign material. The established principle of surgical management of abscess has been incision and free drainage; or treatment by secondary closure . This modality of treatment has been challenged with the introduction of antibiotics. This prospective study was conducted over a period of 21 months in the Department of Surgery, Chhatrapati Shivaji Subharti Hospital, Patients in Group A were treated by incision and drainage with primary closure and a closed suction drain was placed and patients in Group B were treated by incision and drainage with gauze packing only, 60 patients, out of which maximum subjects were from the age group of 21-30 year. Most common causative organism was S. aureus reported among 36.67% of the subjects. Primary closure of breast abscesses is associated with less postoperative pain, decreased hospital stays, faster healing, lower recurrence rate, and more acceptable scar.Aim: To compare conventional incision and drainage with gauze packing versus incision and drainage with curettage and primary closure of drainage of breast abscess.
