Primary squamous cell carcinoma is a very rare malignancy of the breast and it is the tumor of elderly age group. Pure squamous cell carcinoma of the breast can derivate from epidermis, the nipple or epithelium of a deep-seated dermoid cyst or squamous metaplasia on chronic in- flammation background. Prognosis and treatment of this disease is controversial. We report mammographic, histopathologic findings and 24 months follow-up of a case with primary squamous cell carcinoma of the breast and discussed our approach for treatment with review of the literature.
