Malignant phyllodes tumor of the breast (MPTB) is a rare breast malignancy. Surgery is the primary treatment for this malignant tumor. Adjuvant radiotherapy should be considered if the surgical margin is positive. The lungs and bone are the most frequent metastatic sites of MPTB; however, gastric involvement is rare. Herein, we report a 64-year-old woman with MPTB. Surgery was the initial treatment; however, lung and gastric metastases were found 5 years later. Palliative chemotherapy with the…

Atypical Distant Metastasis of Breast Malignant Phyllodes Tumors: A Case Report and Literature Review
The case of a 57-year-old woman presenting with a giant/neglected MPT of the breast, with no DM at initial staging, treated by radical modified mastectomy is described, and the patient died from several DM of rapid evolution.
Malignant Phyllodes Tumor of the Breast: Treatment and Prognosis
The data support the potential use of BCS in patients with MPTB and suggest that mastectomy is indicated only if tumor‐free margins cannot be obtained by BCS, and adjuvant radiotherapy may be considered if tumor-free margins are <1 cm.
Phyllodes tumors of the breast: diagnosis, treatment and prognostic factors related to recurrence.
This review mainly introduced the clinicopathologic characteristics, pre-operational diagnosis and the treatment of breast phyllodes tumors, and also summarized the prognostic factors related to tumor recurrence.
A Prospective, Multi-Institutional Study of Adjuvant Radiotherapy After Resection of Malignant Phyllodes Tumors
Margin-negative resection combined with adjuvant radiotherapy is very effective therapy for local control of borderline and malignant phyllodes tumors.
Malignant phyllodes tumor of the female breast
A large population database was used to determine prognostic factors that predict cause‐specific survival (CSS) in malignant phyllodes tumor patients and found them to be reliable predictors of survival.
Phyllodes tumor of the breast: a retrospective study of the impact of histopathological factors in local recurrence and distant metastasis
It is concluded that patients with moderate and severe cellular pleomorphism had higher local recurrence, while metastatic PT occur more in patients with high nuclear grade.

Treatment of Patients with Distant Metastases from Phyllodes Tumor of the Breast
This study showed that polychemotherapy with Doxorubicin and Ifosfamide suggest that it might be more effective than once thought in patients with phyllodes tumor of the breast with distant metastases with poor prognosis.
