Abstract

Metastatic Her2-positive breast cancer are very aggressive tumors. With the development of anti-Her2 therapies, the prognosis of such tumors has changed. The author reports the case of a 60-year-old woman, diagnosed with a left Her2-positive breast cancer, revealed by a pathological fracture of the right femur (pT1cN1aM1, Stage IV). She received hormonal treatment in association with trastuzumab. She always is under trastuzumab therapy for four years. Anti-Her2 therapies are effective even in metastatic cancer patients.
