Bilateral breast carcinoma developed in a young woman with Peutz‐Jeghers syndrome. A review of the literature reveals that it is not uncommon for Peutz‐Jeghers syndrome to be associated with malignant tumors. A genetic predisposition to cancer development may be part of the spectrum of this syndrome. Patients with Peutz‐Jeghers syndrome should be examined carefully for early detection of cancer.
