Abstract

► The breast as a site of metastasis from primary ovarian carcinoma is uncommon. ► Distinguishing these metastases from primary breast tumors is important because the prognosis and therapeutic approach differ significantly. ► Immunohistochemical markers (e.g., PAX8) can be utilized when morphology and clinical history are insufficient to render the correct diagnosis.
