Cribriform carcinomas are considered to belong a low-grade breast neoplasia family with small size and less frequent axillary LN metastases, higher ER and PR receptor positivity, and lower proliferation indices (27).
Invasive cribriform carcinoma (ICC) of the male breast is a rare finding (0.3% to 3.5% of all invasive breast carcinomas) [9, 10].
Although primary cutaneous cribriform carcinomas (PCCCs) are so rare, they should also be considered in the differential diagnosis.
