Effect of postoperative time for adjuvant radiotherapy in malignant phyllodes tumor: An institutional experience.

J Cancer Res Ther 2018 Jul-Sep;14(5):1054-1058

Department of Radiation Oncology, Gandhi Medical College, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India.

Introduction: Cystosarcoma phyllodes of the breast, an uncommon sarcoma found primarily in women of the age group of 35-55 years, constitutes <1% of all breast neoplasms. These tumors are resistant to chemotherapy and hormonal therapies and often recur aggressively after initial surgery. Limited research is available about the role and effectiveness of adjuvant radiotherapy in reducing recurrences. Read More

Radiopathological characteristics and outcomes of phyllodes tumor of the breast in Malaysian women.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Aug;97(31):e11412

Breast Unit, Department of Surgery.

Phyllodes tumor or cystosarcoma phyllodes is a rare fibroepithelial neoplasm which arises from the periductal stroma of the breast. They are classified as benign, borderline, and malignant based on the histologic features. However, all phyllodes tumor (PT) subtypes are regarded as having malignant potential and correct diagnosis is important for surgical management and optimal care. Read More

Palliative Surgery for Metastatic Fungating Phyllodes Tumors: A Series of Two Cases.

Perm J 2018 07;22

Oncosurgeon at the University College of Medical Sciences and Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital in Shahdara, Delhi, India.

Introduction: Local treatment of metastatic cystosarcoma phyllodes is classically viewed with skepticism because it does not provide survival benefit. When these advanced tumors ulcerate, they reduce quality of life dramatically because of associated pain, infection, malodor, massive discharge, and bleeding.

Case Presentations: Two patients with metastatic cystosarcoma phyllodes presented to our hospital with recurrent disease featuring foul-smelling, ulcerated chest wall masses that caused physical pain and social exclusion. Read More

Center for Sarcoma and Bone Oncology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, 450 Brookline Avenue, D2105, Boston, MA 02115, USA. Electronic address:

Breast sarcomas are a diverse group of neoplasms arising from the nonepithelial and mesenchymal tissues of the breast. Their behaviors vary from the more indolent tumors like cystosarcoma phyllodes to the extremely aggressive angiosarcoma. They should be approached in a similar fashion to their soft tissue sarcoma counterparts in other locations and managed by multidisciplinary sarcoma specialists with attention to wide-margin surgical excision.

Mixed epithelial-stromal tumor (MEST) of seminal vesicle: a proposal for unified nomenclature.

Adv Anat Pathol 2015 Mar;22(2):113-20

*Department of Medicine, University of Calgary †Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of Calgary and Calgary Laboratory Services, Calgary, AB, Canada.

In contrast to the common tumors of the prostate, seminal vesicle demonstrates low potential for neoplastic proliferation. Of the rare primary seminal vesicle tumors, adenocarcinoma is the most common, but there are also rare seminal vesicle neoplasms which demonstrate epithelial and stromal components. These neoplasms have been described in the literature under various names, including "epithelial-stromal tumor," "cystic epithelial-stromal tumor," "cystadenoma," "cystomyoma," "mesenchymoma," "Müllerian adenosarcoma-like tumor," "phyllodes tumor," and "cystosarcoma phyllodes.

Introduction: Cystosarcoma phyllodes (CP) is a rare breast tumor occurring most often in females in their fifth decade. While usually benign, some CP tumors exhibit aggressive growth patterns and extensively invade chest wall structures; resecting these tumors to negative surgical margins can be challenging. We present a case of malignant CP involving the chest wall where using a negative pressure vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) system after resection enabled complete histopathologic margin assessment prior to reconstruction.

Benign phyllodes tumour is a rare non-cancerous growth of the breast characterized by a solitary unilateral tumour in one breast, or rarely multifocal in one or both breasts. It is diagnosed on the basis of physical examination, imaging studies, and fine-needle aspiration cytology. In this report, we present a case of benign phyllodes tumour with an unusual presentation of recurrent attacks of hypoglycemia, which can be attributed to secretion of insulin-like growth factor II from the tumour.

For the year of 2012, it has been estimated that breast cancer will account for the greatest number of newly diagnosed cancers and the second highest proportion of cancer related deaths among women. Breast cancer, while often lumped together as one disease, represents a diverse group of malignancies with different imaging findings, histological appearances and behavior. While most invasive primary breast cancers are epithelial derived adenocarcinomas, rare neoplasms such as the phyllodes tumor may arise from mesenchymal tissue. Read More

In the 4th edition of the WHO Classification of Tumours of the Breast, myoepithelial lesions are retitled myoepithelial and epithelial-myoepithelial lesions in order to better reflect the dual participation of luminal and myoepithelial compartments in some key entities. Malignant myoepithelioma, described as a section within the chapter on myoepithelial lesions in the 3rd edition, is recognised in the 4th edition as part of metaplastic carcinoma.
