SANTOS S, José Ángel et al. TUMOR FILODES DE LA MAMA: CARACTERÍSTICAS CLÍNICAS, EN IMAGEN Y ANATOMOPATOLOGICAS A PROPOSITO DE 18 CASOS. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2007, vol.13, n.2, pp.90-97. ISSN 0717-9308.

We have revised in retrospective study, 18 cases of phyllodes breast tumor diagnosed histolo-gically over a 6 year-period, gathering the clinical, radiological and evolutionary data. All the cases appeared as palpable, elastic and painless nodules. Mammography showed homogeneous density, relatively well defined borders, without internal calcifications. Ultrasonographically they appeared as solid masses, heterogeneous, with posterior enhancement and, some of them with characteristic cystic areas. Fine needle aspiration biopsy was made in 15 patients, before the surgical treatment that was carried out in all the cases. The information related to local relapse and metastasis is similar to those described in the bibliography. We recommend close clinical-radiological surveillance, due to the natural history of the tumour and their high number of relapses
