Invasive carcinoma with osteoclast-like giant cells is an unusual type of mammary adenocarcinoma with few cases reported in the cytology literature. We present the cytologic findings in a case of invasive cribriform carcinoma of the breast containing osteoclast-like giant cells diagnosed by fine-needle aspiration biopsy. The smears displayed three-dimensional cohesive cluster cells of uniform epithelial cells admixed with numerous multinucleated giant cells that morphologically resembled… CONTINUE READING
