While breast cancer is a common disease with many available treatment options, many patients still have limited responses, especially those with metastatic breast cancer. Surgery of the primary tumor or metastatic sites is often not part of the treatment regimen for patients with metastatic breast cancer. Cryoablation is a relatively non-invasive procedure that is being investigated for patients with breast cancer. Patients with metastatic breast cancer who are not surgical candidates may derive benefit from cryoablation through the abscopal effect. In this case report, we present a patient with stage IV breast cancer who was treated with cryoablation of the primary breast tumor and showed evidence of an abscopal effect in regional and distant metastases.
