Evaluation of morphologic features to identify "basal-like phenotype" on core needle biopsies of breast.

Abstract

The basal-like phenotype (BLP) subtype of breast carcinoma has been identified as 1 of 5 tumor subtypes first revealed by microarray profiling. This phenotype tends to be more aggressive, is more often associated with BRCA1 mutations, and carries a poor prognosis. Few studies have morphologically characterized BLP on resected breast specimens (RS), and no… (More)
