Introduction. Breast papillary lesions represent a heterogeneous group of tumors ranging from benign to malignant, including several intermediate forms. Malignant papillary tumors are rare and their molecular characterization is still limited. A few studies pointed to the presence of specific genetic alterations that could be relevant both for diagnostic purposes and to elucidate tumour development and progression. In order to look into the issue, we compared LOH relative frequencies of four… CONTINUE READING
