Abstract
Gigantomastia is relatively rare and mostly unknown manifestation in its diagnostic and therapeutic approach. It is composed by many categories (idiopathic, Juvenile, pregnancy, Medication) that can affect women with strict profile. We report the case of a very important idiopathic gigantomastia which was operated using a technique with superior pedicle with resection of 5kg per breast. The evolution was marked by the occurrence of recurrence at 18 months. Through, the analysis of this observation and review of the literature, the authors review the different aspects of this pathology.
