ABSTRACT

Background: Secretory carcinoma of the male breast (juvenile carcinoma) is a rare neoplasm. Only a few cases have been reported in the literature.

Case report: We report here a case in a 17-year old male presenting with recurrent breast swelling.

Conclusions: Though considered an indolent neoplasm, secretory carcinoma does metastasise to lymph nodes and recur after local excision. Surgery in form of mastectomy with axillary clearance is the treatment of choice.

No MeSH data available.

Mentions: On examination there was a 5 × 4-cm tumour in the sub areolar region with skin infiltration and multiple satellite nodules around the main lesion (figure 1) and multiple mobile ipsilateral axillary lymph nodes. There was no evidence of distant spread. A modified radical mastectomy was performed. Postoperative period was uneventful.
