A phyllodes tumour is a malignancy of both mesenchymal and epithelial origin affecting the breast. The malignant course of this breast tumour causing lung metastasis is rare. Here we report a treated case of borderline phyllodes tumour that presented with pleuroparenchymal metastasis. Our case highlights the possibility of recurrence of borderline phyllodes tumour as pleuroparenchymal metastasis even after a long disease free interval.
