Aim: The primary objective is to study the incidence of various fibro epithelial lesions of breast (FEL) in
different age groups. The secondary objective is to study the FEL based on histopathological features and
corresponding occurrences of patterns in different age groups
Materials and Methods: It is a retrospective study conducted in the department of pathology, Saveetha
medical college. A total of 102 fibro epithelial lesions were taken from the pathology register from the
period of June 2018 to December 2018 along with the age and radiological features if present.
Result: Out of 102 cases, 92 were simple fibro adenomas; 3 were giant fibroadenomas, 2 were complex
fibro adenomas, 1 juvenile and 4 were phyllodes tumour. The commonest group of fibro epithelial lesions
of breast studied was fibro adenoma between the age group of 15 and 30. Most of the histopathological
patterns showed cystic dilatation 30%which was followed by hyalinization 25% and epithelial hyperplasia.
While the phyllodes tumors were recorded under the age group of 35 to 45.
Conclusion: Our findings highlight the important aspects of the interpretation and reporting of fibro
epithelial lesions of breast.

Keywords: Fibroepithelial lesions of breast.
