ABSTRACT
We present the case of a 55-year-old postmenopausal female who presented with complaints of a gradually increasing painless subareolar mass in the left breast of 4 months' duration. Left-sided modified radical mastectomy was performed and the specimen was histopathologically diagnosed as invasive papillary carcinoma. Immunohistochemistry confirmed this diagnosis. All 8 excised axillary lymph nodes were negative for malignant cells. Postoperative chemotherapy was given and for the past 6 months, the patient has maintained a regular follow-up on an outpatient basis. She does not have any evidence of either local or distant recurrence of tumour metastases.

Figure 2: Cystic papillary tumour with soild area of invasion.

Mentions: On examination, there was a single, 3 × 3 cm, firm, well-circumscribed, palpable lump in the subareolar region of the left breast. The nipple was retracted, without ulceration or discharge, and left axillary lymph nodes were not palpable. Opposite breast, axilla and systemic examinations were normal. Fine needle aspiration cytology of the mass was positive for malignant cells and a left-sided modified radical mastectomy was done. On gross examination (fig. 1, fig. 2), the lesion was gray white and 3 × 2 × 2 cm in size. The nipple was partially retracted and the skin of the areola was wrinkled. The cut surface showed a well-circumscribed, solid, cystic, granular mass measuring 3 × 2 × 2 cm with areas of hemorrhage, occupying almost the whole breast and surrounded by fibrous tissue. Histopathological findings (fig. 3, fig. 4, fig. 5) were consistent with the diagnosis of invasive papillary carcinoma, with all surgical margins free of tumour. All 8 excised axillary lymph nodes were negative for malignant cells and immunohistochemistry (IHC) confirmed the diagnosis.
