Abstract

Metaplastic carcinomas of the breast are uncommon tumors with aberrant cellular differentiation, most commonly showing ductal, squamous, and mesenchymal components. A breast carcinoma composed of both epithelial and melanocytic differentiation is rare, with only four previously reported cases in the literature. We present the fifth reported case, where the diagnosis was suggested by fine-needle aspiration (FNA) and later confirmed after the surgical specimen was excised. Histologically, this neoplasm revealed multidirectional differentiation, consisting primarily of squamous and melanocytic cell types, with focal glandular and osseous metaplasia. Based on the morphologic, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural findings, we conclude that such tumors fall within the spectrum of metaplastic carcinomas of the brest. We believe that this case will further contribute to the understanding ofthis enigmatic tumor. (C) 2000 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
