A 56 year old woman was diagnosed with adrenal cortical carcinoma in May 2003, for which she underwent left radical adrenalectomy. Eight months later, in January 2004, she presented with a solitary, well delineated, left breast mass with central pleomorphic calcifications on mammographic examination. A diagnosis of metastatic adrenal cortical carcinoma was made on core biopsy. Subsequently, the patient underwent a lumpectomy of the mass, which confirmed the diagnosis. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of adrenal cortical carcinoma metastatic to the breast.
