Apocrine carcinoma is a very rare form of breast malignancy with an incidence of less than 1% of female invasive breast carcinoma. We report a case of apocrine carcinoma in a 56 year old female and discuss the criteria to diagnose apocrine carcinoma including its distinct androgen receptor positivity making the patients with apocrine carcinoma eligible for targeted therapy.
