Abstract

Introduction: Phyllodes tumor is a rare fibroepithelial stromal tumor of the breast, accounting for <1% of all primary breast tumors. Malignant presentations of this neoplasm are characterized by metastases in up to 10% of all cases. Case presentation: The case reported is of a 19-year-old female patient who was 11 weeks pregnant and presented with jaundice at the skin and scleral levels, abdominal pain, and hepato-megaly, as determined on physical examination. The patient required left mastectomy for a phyllodes tumor that was histologically characterized 16 months ago at another medical institution. The outcome was fatal despite medical efforts before and during pregnancy. Conclusion: The fundamental pillar of the treatment of phyllodes tumor remains to be surgical resection. While age can act as a prognostic predictor, the follow-up of possible recurrences is part of the management process.
