Abstract

While carcinoma of breast is common condition, stromal sarcomas are rare tumors of breast, amongst which fibrosarcoma accounts for 16% of cases. Only a few case reports are available in the international literature. We report a case of fibrosarcoma of breast, which presented as an un-encapsulated mass in the right breast of a 60-year-old female. This case was diagnosed after exclusion of all possible differential diagnoses namely metaplastic carcinoma, cystosarcoma phylloides and other sarcomas of breast owing to its different histogenesis and prognostic behavior, in the light of detailed histopathological examination and immunohistochemical profile.
