Abstract : Fibroadenoma (FA) is one the most common breast tumours seen in adolescent and young women.
Although, in the postmenopausal females FA regresses, becomes hyalinised and shows calcification these
findings are rare in the younger and reproductive age group. Complex FA is defined as FAs with cysts,
sclerosing adenosis, epithelial calcifications or papillary apocrine changes. We present a case of multiple
synchronous FAs in a young female with uncommon findings at her age like extensive hyalinization,
coarse calcification and cystic changes. No evidence of ductal hyperplasia, carcinoma in situ or invasive
carcinoma was seen. Very few such cases have been reported in literature in young females. Despite these
unusual findings, recent large cohort studies concluded that complex FA is not an independent risk factor
for carcinoma breast.
