A Glasgow Hospital was recorded for its preeminence in surgical pathology training. Its head’s biography was on record also. More recently, a lecturer there co-authored a case of breast cancer with 3 histological types. Fortunately, he took great interest in my training as I acknowledged in publishing a triple lung cancer case. Therefore, I propose to document such triple breast carcinomas gathered from my Ibo/Igbo ethnic group thanks to using a Birmingham (UK) group’s advice that instituting a histopathology data pool favors epidemiological analysis. Twenty-four cases are presented here in order to add to the world literature. Among the findings is that different quadrants need not be invoked, seeing that even a microscope slide may reveal up to three different types.
