The content of elastic tissue has been evaluated in 171 primary breast carcinomas. Of the tumors, 35% had no or very little elastic tissue in the malignant areas, 42% presented with medium elastosis, and 22% had gross elastosis. The occurrence of elastin has been related to different prognostic factors. An increasing amount of elastin was found with increasing amounts of estrogen receptor (p = 0.0003), while there was only a slight correlation to the progesterone receptor content.
