Abstract

Phylloides tumor of breast is a rare tumor of fibroepithelial origin forming only about 0.3-0.5% of all breast malignancies. Malignant phylloids tumor is even more rarely encountered lesion of very unpredictable clinical outcome with high chances of recurrence and distant metastasis. Accurate preoperative pathological diagnosis is mandatory to allow correct planning of the surgical treatment which can be either wide excision or mastectomy with an intent to have a negative surgical margin of at least 1 cms. This rare and enigmatic tumor should be kept in mind while dealing with breast lumps. Here, we present a case of recurrent malignant phylloides tumor in a young female alongwith review of literature of this rare entity. Aim and Objective: To present a case of recurrent malignant phylloides tumor in a young female alongwith its cytology images and to have a review of literature of this enigmatic entity.
