Phyllodes tumor was first described in 1838 by Johannes Muller. These tumors are uncommon and comprise < 0.5% of all breast neoplasms. Among the three histological subtypes—benign, borderline and malignant—the malignant variety is the most uncommon. Giant phyllodes tumors measure > 10 cm in their largest dimension. The overall prognosis for these lesions is poor, with high recurrence rates. Surgery with postoperative adjuvant chemoradiotherapy is the main treatment for malignant giant phyllodes tumors. We present a rare case of malignant giant phyllodes tumor of the left breast in a 23-year-old female patient with retrosternal extension and invasion of the pericardium.
