Invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) in the male breast is a rare subtype of a rare disease in men, accounting for approximately 1%-2% of all male breast cancers [1,2]. Only a few cases have been reported in the literature. The pathophysiology is uncommon due to a paucity of lobular development seen in men. We present a rare case of ILC in the male breast, highlighting imaging, pathology findings, and clinical management.
