Introduction: Fibroadenoma and phyllodes tumor are fibroepithelial neoplasms of the breast composed of proliferating mammary epithelial and stromal tissues.It is very rare for infiltrating ductal carcinoma to arise within or be associated with a phyllodes tumor or a fibroadenoma.
Methods and Material: Over a period of ten years, all the breast carcinoma cases from the departmental archives were reviewed.
Results: Nine cases of synchronous fibroepithelial tumors with infiltrating carcinoma of the ipsilateral breast were reported. In four cases, the carcinoma was seen infiltrating the benign tumor- one a phyllodes tumor and the other three fibroadenomas. In rest of the five cases the tumors were independent of each other.
Conclusion: The occurrence of a carcinoma in a fibroepithelial neoplasm, however rare, necessiciates a thorough histopathological examination of all breast lumps.
