Abstract

Introduction: Fibroadenomas are the most common tumours of the female breast, occurring most frequently in women of child-bearing age, especially those under 30 years.

Presentation of Case: We report a case with a total no of 25 fibroadenomas presenting bilaterally of a 20-year-old woman. The clinical and histopathologic features of the fibroadenomas are described.

Discussion: Most fibroadenomas are present as a single mass, however, the presence of multiple fibroadenomas can be seen in 15–20% of the patients. It has been reported that the average number of masses in cases of multiple fibroadenomas is 2–4 in a single breast but the occurrence of more than five fibroadenomas in an individual patient is very less common.

Conclusion: There are few reports of multiple fibroadenomas. We report this case in hoping to expand the literature and to provide insight into the etiology of multiple fibroadenoma formation and advice on management.
