Abstract

Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour (MPNST) is a rare soft tissue sarcoma. In particular, primary MPNST of the breast is extremely rare. We report a case of a giant malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour involving the entire right breast, which was not associated with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1) or previous radiation therapy. A CT scan showed a huge heterogeneous soft tissue mass with well-enhanced nodules at its periphery and low-density internal necrosis, which was confirmed by modified radical mastectomy.
