A primary squamous cell carcinoma of breast (PSCCB) is rare. A “pure” PSCCB especially presenting with the inflammatory features of a breast abscess is an exceptional observation in any age group of patients.
We present a patient recently referred to us with a PSCCB and perform a literature review. By reviewing the international literature we found only 7 cases of PSCCB presenting as abscess and of those only 3 were “pure” ones (1, 2, 3).
