We report a case of intracystic papillary carcinoma of the right breast in a 59-year old man presenting with bloody nipple discharge for 1 week prior to presentation. Mammography, ultrasonography, and core needle aspiration were consistent with intracystic papillary carcinoma. The patient underwent right simple mastectomy. Pathology was also consistent with low grade intracystic papillary carcinoma. —~#H>ene assay revealed a recurrence score of 0, corresponding to a 3% risk of distant recurrence at 10 years. •••• patient did not receive chemotherapy or post-mastectomy radiotherapy. The patient was placed on tamoxifen and has been free of disease to date.
