Sažetak
Background: Breast metastases from extramammary malignancies are extremely rare. Metastasis to the breast is the first sign of malignancy in approximately 10 - 30% of patients, and because of similar morphological features with the primary breast tumor, they represent a major diagnostic challenge. Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) may occur primarily in breast skin or metastasize to the breast. MCC is a rare and highly aggressive neuroendocrine skin cancer characterized by a high incidence of local recurrences and metastasis and a high mortality rate. Surgery followed by radiation therapy represents first- line treatment for primary or loco-regional MCC while advanced forms are treated with chemotherapy. Checkpoint inhibitors have shown a significant advancement in the treatment of advanced MCC. Case: A 79-year-old woman presented with a right nipple induration and two painless masses in the right breast. Breast ultrasound revealed an oval hypoechoic mass located in the right upper outer quadrant and another retro-areolar with skin infiltration. Digital breasts tomosynthesis demonstrated well defined oval hyperdense masses of the right breast. Core biopsy showed neuroendocrine carcinoma of unknown origin. Histopathological examination after a radical mastectomy and axillary lymph node dissection showed primary tumor situated right underneath the skin with in-transit breast metastasis close to the right axillary breast tail. Immunohistochemical studies of both primary tumor and transit breast metastasis were characteristic for MCC. Conclusion: A multidisciplinary team approach is essential for distinguishing between primary breast carcinoma and metastasis to the breast, which has implications for patient treatment and prognosis.
