Abstract

Occult primary breast carcinoma (OPBC) with axillary lymph node metastasis is a rare disorder accounting for 0.1% to 0.8% of all the cases of breast cancer in females. Such a presentation in males is even rarer with only isolated case reports noted in English literature. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the breast detects primary tumor in nearly 2/3rd patients. Role of mastectomy is considered controversial. There is no consensus on the role of adjuvant therapy owing to the rarity of these tumors. We are presenting an elderly man who presented with axillary lymph node metastasis of ductal carcinoma and was treated with surgery followed by adjuvant chemotherapy.
