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.
