Abstract

Lobular carcinoma of the breast uncommonly metastasizes to the cervix. We report a case of lobular carcinoma of the breast with an abnormal cervicovaginal smear caused by metastasis in the cervix. We also discuss the differential diagnosis of primary genital and secondary adenocarcinomas in abnormal cervicovaginal smears.
