The increased detection of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) by mammographic screening and the more widespread use of breast-conserving surgery have led to a search for histological features associated with the risk of recurrence. In a case control study of 141 patients with long follow-up, we compared the ability of five morphological classifications to predict recurrence after local excision. A significant correlation was not found between recurrence and growth pattern when a traditional… CONTINUE READING
