During the period Jan 1990 to June 1996 we encountered.504 cases of malignant tumors of the breastonFNAC. Of these, 5cases were lymphoproliferative malignancies of the breast-4 were Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma (NHL) of the breast and one case was Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia (CLL) infiltrating the breast and producing bilateral masses. Of these patients, one was diagnosed as NHL of tonsil with the involvement of cervical lymph nodes (Stage HA) two years back. She received courses of radiotherapy and chemotherapy and was in remission. She came to us with a lump in the right breast which was shown to be NHL on FNAC. There were 3 cases of large cell lymphoma, 1 case of plasmacytoid lymphoma and 1 case of CLL involving the breast. All the patients were females in the age group 55 to 59 years. Histopathological confirmation was obtained in 4 cases.
