Abstract

Incidence of metastasis to breast from extra-mammary sites is very rare, ranging from 1.2-2%. Matastasis to breast arising from gastrointestinal tract is rare and only few such cases have been reported. It is mandatory to differentiate primary and secondary breast lesions on the basis of history, histopathology and immunohistochemistry in order to avoid unnecessary surgical intervention. Herein we report the case of a 42 year old male presenting with left breast metastasis from gastric adenocarcinoma.
