Occult breast cancer presenting as an axillary lymph node is rare disease. Recently, authors experienced two cases of occult breast cancer presenting an an axillary lymph node. One patient was 40 year old female, and treated with left axillary lymph node dissection, radiation therapy to left breast and combination chemotherapy. She had 27 positive out of 31 axillary lymph node and was free of disease for 35 months.
