Despite increasing information on Pseudoangiomatous Stromal Hyperplasia of Breast (PASH), the challenges of management of giant PASH remain for the surgeon. A pragmatic and individualized approach is the solution in the absence of reliable algorithms for management. This instance of a giant PASH tumor producing gigantomastia with severe ptosis is a case to point. When PASH presents as a giant mass, leading to gigantomastia with inevitable severe ptosis, the surgical options range from the excision of mass with reduction mammoplasty or a simple mastectomy with or without reconstruction. The key to surgical decision-making is individualization of surgery.
