Differential prognostic significance of morphologic invasive markers in colorectal cancer: tumor budding and cytoplasmic podia.

Abstract

PURPOSE In colorectal cancer, the presence of cytoplasmic podia around tumor budding foci may be a morphologic marker for an activated budding phenotype that is associated with cell motility. In this study, we have investigated the prognostic significance of cytoplasmic podia. METHODS A total of 136 pT3 colorectal cancers were classified according to… (More)
