A 34 year-old patient, mother of 3 children, was referred for a laser excision of a vulvar mass diagnosed as a benign phyllodes tumor, probably originating from aberrant breast tissue. No lesion recurrence was noted within the three months following excision. The diagnosis was based on the fact that on microscopic examination all criteria for a pathologic diagnosis of phyllodes tumor were disclosed, and that ectopic mammary tissue consisting of ductal structure surrounding the tumor, was present.
