Abstract

We report a 60-year-old woman with locally advanced mucinous carcinoma of the breast with sudden growth acceleration. A pea-sized mass developed into an ulcerated large tumor within 1 month. After counseling the patient a modified radical mastectomy was performed. Histological examination revealed a mucinous carcinoma without axillary lymph node involvement. Estrogen and progesterone receptors were not detected in the tumor. Pure mucinous carcinoma generally has a less aggressive growth pattern as defined by tumor size, adherence to the overlying skin/bottom fasciae, estrogen and progesterone receptor positive and absence of primary axillary lymph node metastases. This case showed completely similar features to all of the typical biological features of mucinous carcinomas.
