Nanda Patil [12] | Suresh Bhosale | Devika Borade [3]

Abstract: Metaplastic carcinoma comprises of a rare and heterogenous group of breast cancers characterised by differentiation of neoplastic epithelium into squamous cells and/or mesenchymal looking elements. Spindle cell carcinoma is a rare variant of metaplastic carcinoma which shows predominantly spindle cells. It has a poor prognosis with a high rate of local recurrence and distant metastasis. We present a rare case of spindle cell carcinoma of the breast in a 65 year old female patient to highlight its rare occurrence and challenging diagnosis as well as poor outcome.
