Abstract

Objective: Phyllodes tumors are biphasic tumors consisting of epithelial and stromal components that account for less than 1% of all breast tumors. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) phyllodes tumors are classified into three categories as benign, borderline and malignant. It has been reported that these tumors are usually benign and both the stromal component and the epithelial component may progress to malignancy. In this descriptive study, it was aimed to present the cases of phyllodes tumor and to evaluate the clinicopathological features of these tumors in the light of the literature.
