The authors report a case of 84-year-old women, with dysphagia to liquids and solid foods, and with infiltration of right sternocleidomastoid muscle that compressed the upper third of the esophagus to the thoracic hull. The biopsy of sternocleidomastoid muscle permitted the diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer relapse after 22 years.
