Osteogenic sarcoma are malignant mesenchymal neoplasms in which the neoplastic cells produce osteoid and it is the commonest primary bone tumour. However, cases of extra-skeletal osteogenic sarcoma has been reported worldwide occurring in breast, colon and even myocardium Extra-skeletal sarcomas tend to occur in patient over 50 years old. Primary osteogenic sarcoma of the breast is very rare and accounted less than 0.1% of breast cancer. This is a case of a 44-year-old lady who was diagnosed with primary osteogenic sarcoma of the breast and the difficulty encountered in managing it. The long-term prognosis is uncertain due to the small number of cases reported in the medical literature worldwide.
