Abstract

We report two cases of metastatic breast cancer presenting as cholecystitis. Each patient had undergone a mastectomy years earlier. Biopsy of the gallbladder removed during cholecystectomy revealed metastatic infiltrating ductal carcinoma in one patient and infiltrating lobular carcinoma in the other.
