Abstract

Phyllodes tumours are fibroepithelial lesions and count for 0.4% of breast tumours. Telling the difference between phyllodes tumours and fibroadenomas is sometimes difficult but of importance because wide resection is the mainstay of treatment for phyllodes tumours. We present a female patient, 55 years old with a giant phyllodes tumour (38 x 31 x 23 cm) of the breast. The breast reconstruction was done using a pedicled transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap.
