Abstract

Breast fibromatosis is a rare benign tumor of soft tissues with local spread, frequently recurrent but with no metastatic evolutions. We present a case diagnosed in a 41 years old patient referred to a Douala private medical center in February 2012, presenting bilateral breast tumor. Histological analysis  of the excised  samples showed fibroblastic  proliferation  without  atypia and  metastasis which reappeared 15 months after  the initial  intervention in the left breast. A mastectomy and lymp nodes curettage has shown resolution of the symptoms.
