Coexistence of tuberculous axillary lymphadenitis and giant borderline malignant phyllodes tumor of the breast: A rare case report

Sunder Goyal, Prem Singh.

Abstract
Cystosarcoma phyllodes are uncommon breast tumors which rarely metastasize to axillary lymph nodes. The tumor is similar to fibroadenoma in structure, but it is different histologically. Although surgery (excision vs. mastectomy) is the mainstay of treatment, the need for adjuvant therapies such as radiotherapy for a malignant variety is unclear. Its association with ipsilateral tubercular axillary lymph nodes has not been reported in literature so far. We report a 35-year-old female that presented with a giant borderline malignant phyllodes tumor of the right breast along with ipsilateral tubercular granulomatous axillary lymph nodes.

Key words: Cystosarcoma phyllodes, axillary lymphadenitis, tuberculosis, mastectomy
