Phyllodes tumors are uncommon fibroepithelial tumors of breast that have potential for recurrence and
metastasis. Triple assessment by clinical, radiological and histological examination forms the fundamental
basis for the evaluation of phyllodes tumor. Treatment could be either by wide excision or mastectomy
provided that clear histological margins are achieved. Wide local excision with at least 1 cm clear margin is
currently the standard of treatment of phyllodes tumor in most institutions. Most of these behave in benign
fashion however, malignant tumors have higher tendency for local recurrence and systemic dissemination
to lungs, brain. Lymph node involvement is rare.

Keywords: Phyllodes tumor, Malignant, Metastases, Lymph node.
