    Abstract

    Papillary carcinoma, a rare malignant tumor of the breast, accounts for only 1-2% of breast tumors. It predominantly affects elderly women in the sixth decade to the eighth decade of life. The incidence of bilateral papillary carcinomas is very low, with only one case reported in the literature. However, there has been no report of a case of bilateral invasive papillary carcinoma. A case of bilateral invasive papillary carcinoma of the breasts, along with mammography and ultrasound findings, is reported here.
