AbstractTwo hundred cases of male breast carcinoma were treated at the Christie Hospital, Manchester, between 1942 and 1971. The survival rate of the group following curative treatment is presented; the response to palliative treatment is also discussed. The survival rate was particularly good for stage I cases, with 79 per cent surviving for 5 years and 56-3 per cent surviving for 10 years. However, the later stages did less well, particularly when compared with female patients of the same age and stage. With such a rare disease it would be of help to centralize the treatment of these patients as much as possible.
