Case presentation: Here we report a case of a 51-year-old female presenting with left breast mastalgia who was finally diagnosed with AdCC of the left breast. The patient underwent breast‑conserving surgery and axillary staging followed by adjuvant chemoradiation.
Conclusion: Because of the rarity of AdCC of the breast, it has been difficult to conduct prospective trials to determine the best treatment option. Different types of therapy, including BCS and mastectomy with or without axillary staging with or without adjuvant chemoradiation have been reported, all with overall good to excellent long-term results. Prospective controlled trials will help in determining the best treatment.
