Abstract

Although breast abscess is a common inflammatory breast disease, there are rare cases that were found to be associated with malignancy. Primary squamous cell carcinoma of breast (PSCCB) is an example of this. Only a very limited number of PSCCB patients presented with an abscess are reported in the literature. Although rarely seen, postmenopausal women presented with symptoms of breast abscess and exhibiting a poor response to treatment, the possibility of (PSCCB) disease should always be considered in the differential diagnosis.
