Objectives: Breast carcinoma with choriocarcinomatous differentiation is a rare entity, generally presenting with high-grade disease and an aggressive clinical course with overall survival of less than a year Case: A 69-year-old woman with a diagnosis of pT1N0M0 invasive ductal carcinoma with choriocarcinomatous differentiation received six cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy and is still disease free on the 23rd month after diagnosis, showing a better prognosis than most other cases reported in the literature. Conclusion: The reason for the poor prognosis for this type of breast carcinoma remains unclear. Standard chemotherapeutic agents administered for breast carcinoma may be used for choriocarcinomatous differentiation.
