Two cases of giant juvenile papillomatosis of the breast, a rare disease occurring in adolescent girls, are reported from Libya. Both cases had been initially misdiagnosed as phylloides tumour of the breast due to the large size of the tumours. Juvenille papillomatosis should be included in the differential diagnosis of a large breast mass, particularly in young girls.
