Abstract

Primary breast cancer in aberrant axillary breast tissue is rare. Breast cancer in the axilla is most often due to lymph node metastases from an ipsilateral breast tumor or from an occult primary lesion. We describe two patients with primary breast cancer in aberrant breast tissue in the axilla, and review the literature to define guidelines for diagnosis and treatment.
