Yamaç Erhan, Hasan Aydede, Aslan Sakarya, Mine Can, Ali Emre Atýcý, Ali Rýza Kandiloðlu


Fibroadenomas comprise most of the benign breast lumps among young females and present as well circumscribed masses in the breast. Multiple fibroadenomas are not uncommon. But the presence of more than four fibroadenomas in one breast with recurrences at different time periods is rare. A case of multiple, bilateral and recurrent fibroadenomas (12 previously excised lesions, 17 gradually formed fibroadenomas during follow-up) in a 22-year-old nulliparous female who is still on clinical follow-up is presented. This unusual case is helpful to enlighten the difficulty which may take place in the management of such kind of recurrent multiple fibroadenomas of the breast in the adolescent nulliparous female.
