A case of malignant adenomyoepithelioma (MAME) of the breast was analyzed retrospectively. Postoperative pathological examination of immunohistochemical staining of paraffin sections showed that MAME of the breast expressed myoepithelial cellmarkers such as CK5/6, p63, and SMMHC. These results formed the basis of the definitive diagnosis, and the patient was given 4 cycles ofTC chemotherapy. The patient did not have signs of organ recurrence or metastasis after 9 months of follow-up. MAME of the mammary gland is a rare malignant tumor. Detection of the myoepithelial markers by immunohistochemistry is a gold standard for definite diagnosis.
