Abstract

Primary signet ring cell carcinoma (SRCC) of the breast are uncommon tumors with unique clinicopathologic features and aggressive nature. Histogenetically this tumor is distinct from both infiltrating ductal and lobular carcinomas. It is characterized by the presence of >20% signet ring cells (SRC). Pure SRCC breast is very rare and diagnosed when >90% of the tumor shows SRC. We report a case of primary pure SRCC breast in a 78 year old post menopausal woman with a short review of literature.
