AB: Breast tumors have their various biological characteristics as to advanced age of patients. Intraductal papilloma is a benign tumor of the breast which is known to occur in the premenopausal young females. Tumors of the breast in the senile females are found mainly to be breast cancers. No any cases of intraductal papilloma over 80-years were reported in Japan to date. We have recognized mammary tumors in old aged patients to be cancers, but it is necessary to put it into mind there are a few intraductal papillomas even if advanced in age. In this report, we present the most senile case with intraductal papilloma in our institute.
