Abstract

We report a rare case of ectopic breast cancer in a 68-year-old woman, successfully treated by surgery and chemotherapy. We found 37 cases including our case in the Japanese literature between 1933 to 1997. Our review demonstrated that the clinical features of Japenese patients who developed ectopic breast cancer was similar to previous foreign reports.
