A case of secretory (juvenile) carcinoma of the breast is reported in a 31-year-old woman. Secretory carcinoma in adults is rare, with only twenty-seven cases previously reported. It is known to have a more favourable prognosis than the conventional ductal carcinoma. The most adequate treatment appears to be a simple mastectomy with low axillary dissection.
