Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the breast is a rare entity. We treated a 55-year old woman who came to us with bleeding from the left breast tumor. The tumor was 7 x 8 x 10 cm in size with ulceration and surgical biopsy results showed it to be squamous cell carcinoma of the breast, while metastatic work-up findings ruled out other sources of primary tumor. She also complained of nausea and vomiting, and brain CT disclosed cerebellar metastasis. The metastatic brain tumor was surgically removed, however, the symptoms became gradually exacerbated. The patient died 67 days after admission.
