While fibroadenomas constitute most of the fibroepithelial lesions of the breast as seen in routine clinical and pathological practice, other fibroepithelial lesions, albeit less common, can also be encountered in the routine clinical pathology practice, and recognizing these other fibroepithelial lesions is important, as some of these may potentially behave in a biologically aggressive manner. Accurate preoperative identification of these is important to allow for proper treatment. The lesions so included are phyllodes tumors, hamartoma, and pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia.
