Phyllodes tumour of the breast is an unusual fibroepithelial tumour representing 0.3-1% of all breast tumours and 2.5% of fibroepithelial tumours; the peak incidence occurs in patients between 40 and 50 years of age.  This case presents a 46-year-old woman who presented with a painless palpable left breast lump, diagnosed by mammography and ultrasound; the tumour was removed by surgery, which allowed us to show pre and post-surgical changes. We supplement the case with a brief literature review.
