 > Abstract 


Breast cancer is one of the main sources of ovarian metastasis. Diffuse sheet of lobular carcinoma cells can strongly mimic granulosa cell tumor (GCT) which itself is a rare ovarian neoplasm constituting <5% of all the ovarian neoplasms. A 55-year-old female presented with a painful lump in the right breast associated with nipple discharge for 4 months, which on radiological and cytological findings was suspicious of an epithelial malignancy. During routine work-up, a solid-cystic lesion in the left ovarian adnexa was identified. The patient underwent right modified radical mastectomy along with left salpingo-oophorectomy. Histopathological and immunohistochemical features confirmed the diagnosis of a synchronous lobular carcinoma breast with GCT ovary. Simultaneous occurrence of Lobular carcinoma breast (LCB) and GCT ovary is extremely rare. Morphologically, these can look similar, raising a suspicion of LCB metastasis to ovary. This is important to differentiate the two for a proper patient management and prognosis.

Keywords: Granulosa cell tumor ovary, immunohistochemistry, lobular carcinoma breast
