Colorectal metastasis from breast cancer is uncommon. when such a disease presents with features suggestive of a colorectal malignancy 6 years after a mastectomy for a lobular carcinoma of the breast, the situation becomes confounding. Rightly diagnosing such a tumour and accurately staging it is important to decide the right management strategy. We present such a case occuring in a patient where immunohistochemistry helped us confirm the origin of the tumour to be from the breast thus enabling us to treat the patient appropriately.
