Abstract

Purpose: To describe imaging features in giant phyllodes tumors (GPTs) with radiology-pathologic correlations. Materials and Methods: Surgically confirmed 14 GPTs of the breast were retrospectively reviewed with ultrasound, mammograms, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and positron emission tomography. Results: The most GPTs showed circumscribed and lobulated masses with cystic necrosis. Five cases of core needle biopsy results were benign other than GPTs. Conclusion: Radiology-pathologic correlation in GPTs is essential, due to differences of pathologic results (5/14 in our study) between core biopsy and surgical pathology.
