Breast carcinomas, the most common cancer in world, is a global burden. Guideline for management of IDC, most common histological type of breast cancer is well established. But, rare histological subtypes management creates headache to physician due to lack of guideline and scarcity of cases. Here, we documented two cases of uncommon breast malignancy: first is mucinous breast carcinoma; treated by radical MRM followed by adjuvant chemotherapy. Patient is having disease free 2-years after treatment completion. Second one is primary breast lymphoma, tried to managed by combination chemotherapy. Partial response was achieved and radiation therapy was offered to the patient. But patient denied and succumbed to death. These two cases demonstrate the need of standard guideline in infrequent subtype of breast malignancy. Our objective of this study was to record response achieved in comparatively uncommon breast tumor with available resources. More case series and prospective studies may improve the treatment outcome in these patients.
