Contralateral breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is of value in those patients with known or suspected malignancy. Women with unilateral breast carcinoma reveal an increased risk of suffering from malignancy in the contralateral breast. MRI of the breast has developed rapidly over past 20 years and is now firmly established as an important diagnostic tool and detects contralateral lesions in a substantial proportion of women. We present a case report of 67 years female who presented with blood stained discharge from left breast and MRI detected synchronous occult carcinoma in the contralateral breast. In this case report, we emphasize the importance of performing MRI on both the breasts and diagnosing synchronous occult carcinoma in the contralateral breast.
