Eight cases of metastatic neoplasma in the breast were indentified in series of 359 fine needle aspirations(FNAs)of the breast, of which 104 were malignant. The tumours included infiltrating ductal carcinoma in the contralateral breast(2), serous papillary adenocarcinoma ovary (2), sqwamous cell carcinoma cervix (2), adenocarcinima endo,etrrium (1) and Non Hodyki8n's iymphoma (1). In the series, all the patients were females with a mean age of 41 years (range of 21 to 55 years). FNA of breast lump, detected one month to three years after diagnosis of the primary tumour, revealed cytologic patterns of metastatic malignancy in all cases. Clinico-pathological and distinguihing cytological features of this rare entity are discussed.
