Abstract
Solid papillary carcinoma of breast is a low-grade tumour originating in the ductal epithelium. It is commonly seen in post-menopausal women and account for <1% of all breast cancers. Patients can be asymptomatic, have nipple discharge or present with abnormal mammographic findings. Despite of some radiological features solid papillary carcinoma cannot be accurately diagnosed on imaging alone. The most important characteristic of this tumour is its behaviour and interesting pathological feature of lack of myoepithelial cells at the periphery. Its diagnosis can be challenging and its management is still debated. Management varies from breast conserving surgery to mastectomy. Currently there is no evidence to support the role of sentinel lymph node biopsy, radiotherapy and hormonal therapy. Therefore, accurate diagnosis with adequate local excision with breast conserving surgery is the optimal treatment.

Key words: Papillary, Solid papillary lesions, breast carcinoma
