AIMS To study the expression of a range of cytokeratins by malignant myoepithelioma of the breast. METHODS Immunophenotyping was carried out using a panel of antibodies on paraffin wax embedded and frozen material using immunohistochemistry and double-labelled immunofluorescence. Electron microscopy was also performed. RESULTS The tumour cells were positive for CAM 5.2, actin, vimentin, and cytokeratin 14 and negative for cytokeratins 18 and 19. Electron microscopy showed well formed… CONTINUE READING
