We report the imaging findings in an infarcted phyllodes tumor of the breast. A 40-year-old woman presented ten months after surgery for a benign phyllodes tumour with a palpable lump under the scar. We performed clinical examination, mammography, sonography, and MRI. The radiological diagnosis was a postoperative hematoma with granulation tissue. Surgery was performed. Histological diagnosis revealed an infarcted phyllodes tumour. This case illustrates the radiological presentation of a completely infarcted phyllodes tumour. As far as we know, imaging findings of an infarcted phyllodes tumour have not been reported yet.
