Clear cell breast carcinomas are one of the rare types of invasive carcinoma of the breast. Among them, lipid-rich variant is still rare comprising <1%. The tumor derives its name from the intracytoplasmic neutral lipid that gives the cytoplasm a vacuolated and foamy appearance. These tumors are usually hormone receptors negative and Her-2 Neu positive. Here, we report a case of lipid-rich breast carcinoma which showed hormone receptor positivity and Her-2 Neu negative.
