Regardless of the rare occurrence of metastatic lesions to the jaw, it should be taken into consideration in the individuals with a history of malignancy. Early detection requires accurate examination, and microscopic evaluation is essential. In this paper we report a case of breast carcinoma to the mandible as female breast cancer is the most frequent metastatic lesion to the mandible and its metastasis is well documented. The patientâ€™s medical history revealed that she had undergone mastectomy on the left breast three years ago. As this condition is infrequently described, documentation of new cases will augment the existing knowledge.
