Abstract

Spindle cell carcinoma of the breast is a rare subtype of metaplastic carcinoma with likelihood of aggressive behavior and lack of specific treatment options. Spindle cell carcinomas of the breast are typically "Triple Negative" and have distinct clinical, radiographic and pathological characteristics. We present, in this report, the case of a woman diagnosed with spindle cell carcinoma of the breast, and review the literature on this rare but intriguing disease.
