Adenocarcinomas with a micropapillary pattern (MPP), featuring small papillary tufts lacking a central fibrovascular core, are thought to have a poor prognosis. To examine whether the MPP is a predictor of prognosis, clinicopathologic characteristics of adenocarcinomas were analyzed with particular reference to survival of early-stage patients. The subjects were 344 consecutive patients (female/male ratio 163:181) for whom complete surgical resection was undertaken at the Cancer Institute… CONTINUE READING
