Breast metastases from non-small cell lung carcinoma are rarely reported. A 70-year-old female patient presented with a massive right-sided pleural effusion due to metastasis from a right lower lobe lung adenocarcinoma which was negative for activating epidermal growth factor receptor mutation and anaplastic lymphoma kinase translocation. Twenty months after her initial presentation, she developed right breast metastasis when her disease progressed despite first- and second-line cytotoxic chemotherapy.
