Less than 5% of breast cancers present as metastasis, and urinary bladder secondaries were only sporadically reported in the literature. However, they may even be responsible for the initial presentation, for which reason they can pose a diagnostic challenge. We present here what we believe is the first such case in Hong Kong, with a review of this entity.
Key words: Breast neoplasms; Neoplasm metastasis; Urinary bladder
