ABSTRACT
Introduction: Secretory carcinoma is a rare low-grade breast carcinoma. Although originally described in children, it is now known to occur in adults of both sexes. Distant metastases from secretory carcinoma are extremely rare but the overall incidence of axillary lymph node infiltration is around 30% in children and adults regardless of gender.
Case Report: This paper includes a case report of secretory carcinoma in a young girl, which was managed by surgical treatment including local recurrence but no other adjuvant therapy.
Conclusion: Secretory breast carcinoma can be a diagnostic challenge histologically. In the absence of any consensus guidelines, treatment decisions are based on data extrapolated from more common varieties of breast cancer.

Keywords: Breast cancer, Rare cancer, Secretory carcinoma
