Cell cannibalism is an emerging indicator of both the anaplastic grade and invasiveness. It is especially valuable as it eventually helps in assessing tumor behavior. Sixty two cytologically diagnosed (FNAC) cases of breast malignancies were assessed for the presence of cell cannibalism. The results were correlated with the grade/differentiation of malignancy. The study revealed that cell cannibalism was encountered in 67.74% cases of breast carcinoma. Fifty percent of grade I, 65% of grade II… CONTINUE READING
