ABSTRACT

We are reporting a 43-year-old female breast cancer case with a solitary metastatic adenocarcinoma in clivus. This patient with a stage II (T1N1M0) breast cancer history has been followed for 7 years.  Modified Radical Mastectomy (MRM) and 6 courses chemotherapy with CMF (Cyclophosphamide, Metotrexate, 5FU) regimen were done for her at the time of diagnosis. Also, she took tamoxifen twenty mg per day for five years. She had no evidence of disease for 6 years. About one year ago she suffered diplopia and headaches for two months. MRI and CT scan studies showed a well defined mass in her clivus. Biopsy of mass was performed and pathologic report was metastatic adenocarcinoma.
