Immunological markers improve specificity and accuracy of cell detection, therefore it is important to evaluate their usefulness in improving standard histological procedures. This study investigates whether immunocytochemical techniques increase the accuracy of detection, in axillary lymph nodes, of metastatic cells from infiltrating breast lobular(More)
On examination of a breast mass surgically excised in a 69-years-old woman, a pure invasive micropapillary carci-noma (MPC) was diagnosed (Figure 1).
