Progress in screening mammography and adjuvant therapy contributed to improve the survival of patients with early and locally advanced breast cancer. Despite that, in some patients develop local recurrence or distant metastases. It occurs most often during the 2–3 years after primary treatment, however, relapse is possible even after many years. Here in the case of distant recurrence 26 years after the end of primary treatment is described.
