Phyllodes tumours are rare biphasic breast lesions that generally occur in older women than fibroadenomas. We report case of a 14 year old girl who presented with a 1 year history of an ulcerated fungating left breast mass that required mastectomy. The general lack of awareness of breast disease in our community or knowledge of available therapies is discussed. The relevant literature is also reviewed.
