Abstract

Giant Phyllodes tumors are fibroepithelial breast neoplasms that pose unique challenges for breast and reconstructive surgeons due to their size and propensity for recurrence. We present a case of a 47-year-old female with a rapidly growing giant Phyllodes tumor managed successfully with breast conservation and extreme oncoplastic reconstruction as an alternative to simple mastectomy which is typically recommended for lesions this size. The surgical approach utilized a split Wise pattern reduction on the affected side and standard Wise pattern on the contralateral side for symmetry. Ultimately, a complete resection with negative margins was achieved, along with satisfactory cosmesis and preserved nipple sensation for the patient. This case demonstrates the efficacy of using oncoplastic techniques in the management of a benign giant Phyllodes tumor.
