Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) of the breast is a rare entity, not well known, nevertheless literature reports several
signalings from different authors. Regarding ethiopathogenesis, SCC of the breast is still the object of numerous discordances
and controversies. We report two cases of SCC of the breast referred to our institution in the last year.
The first case interests a 35 years-old woman with a lesion of the left breast referred to us with a 3 month history of
breast mass. The second case regards a 49 year-old women with multicentric lesions of the right breast operated in two
different times.
The SCC is a rare breast entity with a controversial histogenesis. The development is characterized by metastasis frequency.
The treatment remains not codified. The treatment is currently the same as for infiltrating ductal carcinoma.
Indeed, the limited number of this kind of tumor doesn’t allow the assessment of different therapeutic protocols.
