Phyllodes tumors (PTs) are uncommon neoplasms of the breast, constituting 0.3 to 0.9% of all breast tumors in females comprised of both stromal and epithelial elements. The term cystosarcoma phyllode was coined by Johannes Muller, a misleading term as tumors are rarely cystic and the majority follow a benign clinical course.

The term giant phyllodes is used when the tumor size exceeds 10 cm in diameter. WHO (World Health Organization) classification has identified three categories of phyllodes tumors of the breast (PT): benign, borderline and malignant. The mainstay of treatment of non-metastatic phyllodes tumors of the breast is complete surgical resection with wide resection margins. Local recurrence up to 50 % after surgery has been reported in Phyllodes tumors.
We report a case of two episodes of recurrent phyllodes tumor in a young female.
