Poland's syndrome is a congenital anomaly that occurs in 1 of every 32,000 live births. Only two published cases of breast cancer in patients with this congenital anomaly have been previously reported. We describe a case of breast cancer in a 71 year-old female with a clinical diagnosis of Poland's syndrome. A detailed description of the clinical manifestations is provided.
