We report a case of breast metastasis of signet ring cell gastric cancer clinically presented as a primary inflammatory carcinoma. Metastases to the breast are uncommon; review of the literature demonstrated only 300 cases. The clinical and radiographic features of the metastatic lesion were unlike those reported in the literature. Although a primary signet ring cell breast carcinoma were described, the pathologic patterns of the breast lesion, here reported, lead us to conclude this was a metastasis and not another primary tumor.
