As in female patients, the clinical course in male patients with breast cancer is determined mainly by tumor stage. The literature contains very limited data on either the occurrence or the treatment of CNS metastases. This paper presents the case report of a 69-year-old man with multiple brain metastases 7 years after a diagnosis of lymph-node positive breast cancer, which had earlier already spread to the bones and liver. Whole-brain irradiation with a total dose of 30Gy resulted in palliation of symptoms. Nevertheless, survival was very short (7 weeks from diagnosis). Patients with metastatic breast cancer are at risk for the development of brain metastases. When performance status is poor the survival of patients with brain metastases is very limited. Treatment recommendations are the same as those for female patients with brain metastases from breast cancer.
