The purpose of the Idiopathic Granulomatous Mastitis (IGM) Registry is to collect data on a large cohort of patients across multiple institutions to identify the most efficacious ways to treat this condition. The IGM Registry uses a short data-entry form housed in the Society’s HIPAA-compliant Mastery of Breast Surgery Program, a free member benefit.
