• Cystosarcoma phyllodes is a rare neoplasm of the breast. The tumor contains both stromal and epithelial elements. Local excision or simple mastectomy is usually curative. Most recurrences are local and can be controlled with excision. We treated a 23-year-old woman in whom disease had metastasized to the lungs with six courses of doxorubicin hydrochloride and cisplatin at three-week intervals and achieved complete remission.
