Skin reducing nipple sparing mastectomy with immediate breast reconstruction for huge borderline phyllodes tumor of the breast: Case report
Surgery; Breast Surgery; Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
Introduction: Borderline phyllodes tumors are very infrequent breast tumors encountered by surgeons.
Case presentation: We present a case of a young woman with a very large borderline phyllodes tumor measuring 20 cm × 20 cm, involving almost all of the breast, causing gross asymmetry of the breasts.
Discussion: The patient wished to maintain symmetry following the surgery as a result of which a simple mastectomy followed by implant based Immediate breast reconstruction was planned. The patient had an uneventful recovery postoperatively with equal breast size bilaterally.
Conclusion: Implant based immediate breast reconstruction thus provides a comprehensive solution and excellent cosmesis for women with very large borderline phyllodes requiring mastectomy
