Metastasis to the breast from extra mammary sites is very rare, constituting only 1 to 2 percent of metastasis. Lymphoma, malignant melanoma and bronchial carcinoma are the malignancies which metastasize to the breast. Metastasis to the breast in a case of primary anorectal melanoma is rare with only few cases reported in literature. We present a case of a 40 year old female who presented with a lump in the left breast. She had history of malignant melanoma of anorectal region for which she underwent anterior resection 6 months back. We did FNAC of left breast lump and found metastasis. Unfortunately patient died within few days.
