TORRES AJA, Lidia; CABALLERO AJA, Neylín  y  PUERTO LORENZO, José. Benign Phyllodes Tumour of the Breast. Literature Review and Case Presentation. Rev. Finlay [online]. 2017, vol.7, n.4, pp.290-293. ISSN 2221-2434.

Phyllodes tumor is an uncommon fibroepithelial neoplasia, with an epithelial benign component and mesenchymal component that can be malignant or benign and represents only 0.3 to 0.4 % of all breast tumours. It appears mainly in the female sex; a few male cases have been reported worldwide and they are unusual in girls and adolescents. It appears during the fourth or fifth decade of life. A case of a 49 year old patient is presented who came to the mastology consultation complaining of a protuberance which occupied the two left breast external quadrants. It was diagnosed by paraffin-embedded biopsy as benign phyllodes tumor of the breast. Due to the infrequent presentation of this entity, the publication of this case is considered of scientific value.

Palabras clave : phyllodes tumor breast neoplasms; neoplasms; fibroepithelial; women; adult; biopsy.
