Phyllodes tumor is also called as Phyllodes Cystosarcoma. They are rare breast tumor; accounting for less than 1% of all breast tumors. In this case, we report a case of a middle aged female presenting with large size mass involving whole right breast. There was high suspicion of malignancy but definitive diagnosis was not made until we had histopathology report of that mass after its complete excision. Accurate diagnosis is necessary to provide appropriate treatment to the patient and to avoid recurrence.
