According to the standards set by the World Health Organization WHOPTs may be classified as benign, borderline or malignant based on the degree of stromal cell atypia, mitotic status, degree of stromal overgrowth, tumor necrosis and appearance of tumor margins 5. The majority of malignant transformation of PTs typically occurs in the stromal compartment and rarely in the epithelial compartment. Surgery is considered the standard treatment for PT 7. An IDC that is incidentally found within a borderline PT has been reported only once before in the literature
