A Case Study on Giant Malignant Phyllodes Tumor of the Breast

Phyllodes tumor is a rare fibroepithelial breast tumor that accounts for less than 1% of all breast neoplasms [1]. Clinically, it is a large, smooth, and rapidly growing mass that develops from the periductal stroma of the breast [2]. Phyllodes tumors can be classified as benign, borderline, or malignant, with malignant tumors accounting for between 23 and 50 percent of all cases. This classification is based on histologic characteristics such as stromal cellularity and atypia, mitotic count, and stromal overgrowth [2]. The goal of this review is to characterize the main clinical and radiological findings, as well as the anatomopathological findings, of phyllodes tumors. We present a case of a massive malignant phyllodes tumor in a 62-year-old woman who presented with a large breast mass over a 10-month period. The patient had a total mastectomy, and pathology revealed a malignant tumor.
