Neuroendocrine Carcinoma (NEC) of the breast is a very rare entity representing approximately 0.1% of all breast cancers. The clinical or radiological features are not distinguishable from high-grade Not Otherwise Specified (NOS) type invasive breast carcinoma. We present a 53 y/o female patient who had previously been treated for mammary carcinoma with neuroendocrine differentiation recurred with large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma describing detailed imaging findings on mammography, ultrasonography, elastography, and MRI. We present different imaging features of the tumor such as benign morphology in B mode ultrasound, stiffness in elastography, and lack of restricted diffusion on diffusion-weighted MRI.
