We report on a young female renal transplant recipient on long-term cyclosporine A therapy who developed a giant fibroadenoma presenting as a rapidly enlarging solitary left axillary mass, with a background history of recurrent smaller fibroadenomas. A brief discussion of the clinical and imaging features, pathology, and treatment approaches follows with a short review of the literature. The importance of a multidisciplinary approach is also demonstrated.
