abstract

  • This report documents an uncommon variant of benign cystosarcoma phyllodes with mature adipose stromal differentiation, for which the term lipophyllodes tumor is proposed. Origin of this unusual tumor within a lipomatous hamartoma was confirmed by histologic and mammographic observations. The lesion developed in a 40-year-old woman 2 months post partum, and she remained well after treatment by biopsy. Lipophyllodes tumor, which features mature adipose tissue in much of the stromal component of a cystosarcoma, should not be mistaken for a malignant neoplasm. Complete excision is adequate therapy.
