ABSTRACT


Phyllodes tumors (PTs) are a rare fibroepithelial tumor of the breast. Histopathological confirmation of stromal and epithelial component is required for making the diagnosis of PT, and stromal component carries an increased risk of sarcomatous transformation. We present imaging findings of a histologically proven case of malignant PT with heterologous liposarcomatous transformation of the breast.
Keywords: Fibroepithelial neoplasm, heterologous liposarcomatous differentiation, phyllodes tumors
