This case report describes a gross asymmetric breast enlargement due to a large galactocele and a rapidly growing benign phyllodes tumour in a lactating mother. Imaging appearance of this combination has not been reported previously. Simultaneous occurrence of these two pathologies has given rise to “pseudo-hamartoma appearance” in the mammogram as we illustrate here.
