Few individual cases of invasive cystic hypersecretory ductal carcinoma of the breast have been described. Review of 33 cases of cystic hypersecretory carcinoma, including the current case, indicate that only 6 cases presented with invasive disease. Two of these cases had positive nodes and 2 had distal metastases. The case presented here is unique in an additional aspect: the contralateral breast harbored lobular breast carcinoma 10 years after mastectomy of the first malignancy. Bilateral breast disease resulting in bilateral mastectomies over long-term follow-up, as in the case presented here, was reported in 3 of 33 cases.
