Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Fibroadenomas with a predominant cystic change are called cystic fibroadenomas. These are extremely rare forms of fibroadenomas and only one case has been reported so far. They are classified under the category of complex fibroadenomas. Complex fibroadenomas are a rare variant of fibroadenomas occurring in elderly females. They are characterized by presence of one of the complex features along with the usual patterns of fibroadenoma such as cysts more than 3 mm, papillary apocrine metaplasia, or sclerosing adenosis. Patients with these lesions have higher chances of developing carcinoma of breast. We present a case of 35 years old lady with a freely mobile mass in the left breast diagnosed as cystic fibroadenoma after thorough histopathological examination of the lesion.
