Details of a proposed new classification for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) are presented. This is based, primarily, on cytonuclear differentiation and, secondarily, on architectural differentiation (cellular polarisation). Three categories are defined. First is poorly differentiated DCIS composed of cells with very pleomorphic, irregularly spaced nuclei,(More)
Breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease encompassing a variety of entities with distinct morphological features and clinical behaviors. Although morphology is often associated with the pattern of molecular aberrations in breast cancers, it is also clear that tumors of the same histological type show remarkably different clinical behavior. This is(More)
Eighty cases of duct carcinoma in situ (DCIS) of the breast have been investigated by a cohort-retrospective study. These consisted of 8.5 per 1,000 of 9,446 breast biopsies originally diagnosed as benign, between 1964 and 1976, with a mean follow-up of 17.5 years. There were forty-one cases (51%) of DCIS of clinging type (CC); 30 cases (37.%) of CC(More)
Breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease with varied morphological appearances, molecular features, behavior, and response to therapy. Current routine clinical management of breast cancer relies on the availability of robust clinical and pathological prognostic and predictive factors to support clinical and patient decision making in which potentially(More)
A newly recognized type of dimorphic carcinoma of breast, distinct from adenoid cystic carcinoma, is described. It is characterized by a predominantly solid, clear cell myoepithelial proliferation, with centrally situated glandular lumina lined by apocrine cells. All cases arose in association with a distinctive type of atypical apocrine adenosis which has(More)
Breast glands and salivary glands are tubulo-acinar exocrine glands that can manifest as tumours with similar morphological features, but that differ in incidence and clinical behaviour depending on whether they are primary in breast or salivary glands. Salivary gland-like tumours of the breast are of two types: tumours with myoepithelial differentiation(More)
The clinicopathological features of six cases of breast carcinomas showing features of acinic cell differentiation, which are similar to those seen in homologous tumors of salivary glands, are presented. The patients, all women, were 35–80 years of age. One case recurred after 4 years, and in two cases axillary lymph-node metastases were found at the time(More)
We present four cases of a malignant thyroid tumor showing morphologic, immunocytochemical, and ultrastructural features of endothelial cell differentiation. The tumor cells had epithelioid features and displayed strong immunoreactivity for keratin. There was no evidence of follicular or C-cell differentiation in any instance. We interpreted these cases as(More)
2-18% of ductal carcinoma-No Special Type (NST) are reported to express basal cell keratin 14 and such tumours may have a different metastatic pattern and prognosis. We performed immunohistochemistry for cytokeratins 19 (luminal) and 14 (basal) on 92 ductal carcinoma-NST. Those tumours showing CK14 expression were further characterized by(More)
Three cases of oncocytic carcinoma of the breast observed in two women and one man are reported. One tumor was in situ and two were invasive. All three tumors were composed mostly of cells with "low-grade" nuclei and abundant granular eosinophilic cytoplasm. More than 70% of the neoplastic population in each case was immunoreactive with an antimitochondrion(More)
