oa Central African Journal of Medicine - Malignant cystosarcoma phyllodes: report of two cases

  • ISSN : 0008-9176



Two cases of malignant Cytosarcoma phyllodes seen in Jos University Teaching Hospital over a 9-year period are being reported. One occurred in a 16-year girl now dead and the other in a 52-year old woman probably dead. Both cases showed metastases, the axillary nodes being involved in the deceased, cervical nodes in the elderly patient, and both had pulmonary and presumably hepatic metastasis. These were the 2 cases seen out of a total of 696 surgical breast specimens reviewed thus constituting 0.3 percent. It is not certain if chemotherapy has been beneficial but one might need more cases well organised trials to arrive at definitive conclusions.
