Ectopic breast tissue, a developmental anomaly, is a rare occurrence. Isolated pathologies in ectopic breast tissue with normal breast architecture are even rarer. Cases with primary invasive ductal carcinoma, invasive lobular carcinoma, secretory carcinoma, and mucinous carcinoma have been reported in ectopic breast tissue. We report a case of primary adenoid cystic carcinoma of axillary ectopic breast tissue, which to our belief has never been reported earlier.
