Metastatic breast carcinoid is uncommon. We presented a patient with bilateral breast carcinoid metastatic from the liver. The patient was diagnosed as having unresectable hepatic carcinoid two years prior to the development of bilateral breast masses. Lumpectomy was performed. She was followed at our hospital for six months without local breast recurrence. The diagnosis of metastatic and primary breast carcinoid will be discussed.
