Metaplastic breast carcinoma (MpBC) accounts for <5% of all cases of breast cancer. Retroperitoneal metastasis is also a rare metastatic site of breast cancer. We report a case of retroperitoneal metastasis of MpBC which was extirpated by transperitoneal laparoscopic surgery. The patient was free of disease for 30 months. We also discuss the presentation, diagnosis and treatment of retroperitoneal metastasis of MpBC causing hydronephrosis.
