Abstract :

Papillary carcinoma is a rare form of east carcinoma seen mostly in post menopausal women, easily mis- diagnosed as fioadenoma. These tumors rarely attain a size greater than 3 cm. We present the case of a 65 years old postmenopausal female who presented with a complaint of a lump in left east which gradually increased to present size in upper outer quadrant since 2 years. FNAC reports suggested it to be fioadenoma. Lumpectomy was done and specimen was sent for histopathological examination (HPE). HPE report suggested intraductal papilloma with foci of low grade papillary carcinoma. Modified radical mastectomy was done. 2 nodules measuring 0.4 cm in size was seen in axillary region with similar histopathological findings as that in lumpectomy specimen. The patient is on regular follow up.
