Breast cancer is the most common malignancy among American women and, after lung cancer, the second greatest cause of female cancer deaths. Even with early diagnosis and application of new therapies, approximately 50% of patients are still at risk of developing distant metastasis. The common metastasic sites of breast cancer are the distant lymph nodes, bone, lungs, liver, and brain. Gastrointestinal tract metastases are less common and are detected in less than 5% of all breast cancer patients. Duodenal metastasis of breast cancer occurs at a low rate and until now there have been only few reported cases. Gastrointestinal metastasis usually derives from lobular breast cancer rather than ductal breast cancer, which is the much more common cell type of breast cancer. In this report, we present a rare case of a 65-year-old female who presented with duodenal metastasis from invasive lobular breast carcinoma.
Key Words: Lobular breast carcinoma; Gastrointestinal tract metastasis; Duodenum
