Keywords:Breast, Squamous cell carcinoma, Breast cancer, Gynecologic oncology, Gynecological cancer, Oncology
Squamous cell carcinoma of the breast is a rare disease, it is presented as a palpable mass, often of large volume. The clinical aspects are not specific. Squamous cell carcinomas of the breast are not hormone-dependent and are not very lymphophilic. The diagnosis is histological after eliminating the metastatic origin. Overall survival and no recurrence are worse than any other forms of breast cancer. Treatment is similar to the ductal infiltrating carcinomas one and is based on surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The prognosis is poor. We reported one case of squamous cell carcinoma of the breast collected at the department of gynecology and obstetrics at Mohammed VI university hospital of Oujda through this observation we will focus on the different characteristics of this entity which remains rare.
