Abstract

Neuroendocrine breast carcinoma (NEBC) is histologically a rare type of invasive breast cancer. It constitutes only 0.2–0.5% of
all invasive breast cancers. In this case series, we are presenting five cases having primary neuroendocrine breast cancers that
had been reported at a high-volume cancer centre in Pakistan. In this study, neuroendocrine breast cancer patients at Shaukat
Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre Peshawar were evaluated. We had retrospectively collected
information on demographic characteristics of our patients, physical examination, radiological findings, surgical procedures
with their outcomes, histopathological and immuno-histochemical characteristics, systemic adjuvant/neoadjuvant therapy
and follow-up.
