As the prevalence of breast cancer has increased over recent years many cases with unusual presentation are emerging. This review attempts to identify different types of primary malignancies that can affect the breast. A five years review was undertaken at the Breast Unit of Azienda Ospedaliera "Santa Maria", Terni (Italy). All cases of breast malignancy admitted to the Breast Unit between 2001 and 2005 were reviewed: 750 patients were diagnosed with malignant breast disease. Primary breast lymphoma (was found only in two cases accounting for an incidence of 0,26%. The pre-operative diagnosis was infiltrating carcinoma in both cases and the patients were treated with surgery and systemic chemotherapy; currently they are disease- free.
