Fibroadenoma is the most common benign breast tumour in adolescent and young women. Squamous metaplasia in fibroadenoma is not a common finding and has not yet been reported in northeast India. Squamous metaplasia in fibroadenoma probably arises from the myoepithelial cells. A case of fibroadenoma with squamous metaplasia in a 20-year-old unmarried woman is reported.
