<b><i>Background: </i></b>Breast cancer (BC) is the most frequent cancer in European women with nearly 30% of the patients eventually developing metastases. Neuroendocrine differentiation is a rare event, but overexpression of somatostatin receptors in BC has been reported in many studies. <b><i>Case Report: </i></b>A patient with liver metastases from BC was treated with peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT). Computed tomography scan and biochemical examinations showed a clear response to radionuclide therapy. <b><i>Conclusion: </i></b>PRRT may be useful in metastatic BC patients.
