Abstract

Prompted by the observation of a case of secretory (juvenile) secretory carcinoma of the breast, the Authors review the literature on this extremely rare disease. In view of the biological characteristics of this type of tumour, the Authors maintain that to ensure radical surgery and correct staging a quadrantectomy operation combined with emptying of the axillary cavity should be performed in those cases complying with the tumour size indication (2 cm). In larger tumours they regard the Helsted operation as the only form of surgery guaranteeing an adequate degree of radicality.
