Occult primary breast carcinoma presenting as axillary lymphadenopathy is a very rare entity. Owing to the absence of primary tumor, diagnosis and treatment of such cases is a real challenge for oncologists. The histopathological examination and immunohistochemistry evaluation of the tissue plays a salient role in diagnosing and typing of such tumor. Here, we are reporting a case of a 38-year-old woman with occult primary breast carcinoma, discovered after initially presenting with neurological symptoms.
