Metastasis to the breast from an extramammary site is very rare. Breast metastasis is most commonly seen in association with contralateral breast carcinoma while colorectal carcinoma metastases forms a smaller part. Only handful of cases, of metastatic colorectal carcinoma in breast has been reported in the literature. Hereby we present a rare case of breast metastasis from colorectal adenocarcinoma, in a 35-year-old female. Post mastectomy, recurrence was noted near scar site. Breast metastasis is rare and chest wall metastasis is even rarer. So, our patient showed metastasis at two uncommon sites, which are seen quite infrequently.
Keywords: breast metastasis, chest wall metastasis, colorectal adenocarcinoma.
