Breast metastases are extremely rare with a reported incidence of only 0.5-6.6% of all breast malignancies. We report a case of bilateral breast metastases in a 45-year-old lady who presented with an ulcero-proliferative epigastric mass. Imaging features suggested a diagnosis of carcinoma gallbladder as the primary aetiology. The diagnosis was proven by biopsy from the epigastric mass lesion. It is extremely rare to find breast metastases from carcinoma gall bladder and very few similar cases have been reported in the literature.
