Abstract provided by Publisher
 
The most common sites for breast cancer metastasis
include the bones, lungs, liver, lymph nodes, and brain.
However, splenic metastasis of breast cancer is extremely
rare. Hypersplenism occurs as a cause of severe
hemolytic anemia in carcinomas or with marked splenic
enlargement related to splenic metastasis. We presented
a rare case of breast cancer with splenic metastasis that
was undergone splenectomy to correct cytopenia related
to hypersplenism. In the light of this case, splenectomy
can be beneficial in the patients with hypersplenism.
