Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) is well established procedure in the diagnosis and management of breast lesions in women. However, it is underutilized procedure for the management of male breast lesions. Gynecomastia is the most common male breast disorder. The incidence of breast carcinoma in men is low, accounting for less than 1% of all breast cancers and less than 1.5% of all malignancies in men [1-3]. Multiple distant cutaneous metastases from male breast carcinoma are rare finding. In the English language literature few references are present about this subject, and very few are reported on cytology [4,5]. We herein present a case of multiple remote papulonodular cutaneous metastases from breast carcinoma in a 47-year-old man.
