Abstract

 

Breast cancer is the mostly seen malignancy of women. Breast cancer causes lung, bone, liver and brain metastasis. On the other hand, gastric metastasis of breast cancer is a rarely seen metastasis. For this reason, it may be misdiagnosed or diagnosed after its morbid or mortal complications occurred. This may also result as a delay of breast cancers primary treatment. If occurred the best tool is immunohistochemical panels especially gross cystic disease fluid protein 15 (GCDFP-15) for exact diagnosis. In our case, a gastric metastasis of breast cancer is presented which was admitted with the acute abdominal findings caused by its result as gastric perforation and diagnosed by GCDFP-15 immunohistochemical panel.
