Secretory breast carcinoma (SBC) is a very rare subtype of breast carcinoma that reported mostly in young women, with a median age of 25 years. Despite the low frequency, SBC elicits pathologic interest because of their unique morphology and excellent prognosis. Authors report a 23-year-old woman presented with a nodule in retro areolar region of her right breast. Microbiopsic examination revealed neoplastic tissue. Pathological examination of tumor revealed SBC. This tumor is morphologically characterized by the presence of abundant eosinophilic secretions in intracellular vacuoles and intercellular spaces. The objective of this paper is to review the epidemiological, clinical, paraclinical and therapeutic aspects of SBC from a case report and literature review.
