Phyllodes tumor of the breast is a rare tumor, which is part of fibroepithelial breast tumors with a wide range of clinical presentation and biological behavior. They are classified into benign, borderline or malignant based on histologic factors. The less aggressive or benign forms show a more behavior to that of fibroade-nomas, but malignant forms usually show a more aggressive behavior. The prognosis of this tumor is favorable, with local recurrence in 15% overall and distant recurrence between 5-10% globally. The treatment relies on surgical excision of the lesion accompanied by radiotherapy and chemotherapy even in the most aggressive. We present a review of 13 cases of this entity diagnosed in our center between 2001-2009.
