Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed life-threatening cancer in women and the leading cause of cancer death among them worldwide. It includes a heterogeneous collection of diseases with various histologically defined subsets, clinical presentations, responses to treatment and outcomes. We describe 2 cases of female patients with ductal breast carcinoma. Dermatologists may have an important role in diagnosing such diseases.
