Abstract

Phyllodes tumours are rare breast neoplasms that present as painless breast masses. They are classified as benign, malignant and borderline. More rare presentations of these tumours include bilateral asynchronous disease and unilateral multifocal disease. Surgical excision with clear margins remains the treatment of choice for these tumours. The present case report is the first to be discussed in the literature. It describes a patient presenting with synchronous bilateral, multifocal breast phyllodes tumours who underwent immediate reconstruction with tissue expanders at the time of her mastectomies.
