This case is interesting from several prints of view, namely its rarity, the controversies over its nomenclature, and the frequency of with which it is misdiagnosed, leading to mismanagement such as mastectomy for this benign condition. Like most Nigerian patients her late presentation led to the massive size and peculiar presentation of this tumour.
