PURPOSE Our aim was to investigate the distribution of CD34 and smooth muscle cell actin positive myofibroblasts in the stroma of the normal mammary gland, benign and malignant tumors. The observations were especially focused on the diagnostic value of the cumulative results obtained with these immunoreactions. METHODS Our study included 112 female patients with suspect breast masses obtained by surgery or biopsy. We performed morphological study and immunohistochemistry for CD34 and SMA… CONTINUE READING
