We have already reported invasive ductal carcinomas (IDCs) with fibrotic focus (FF) to be associated with significantly poorer survival than IDCs without FF. The purpose of this study was to prospectively investigate the effect of the presence of FF on the outcomes of 439 patients with IDCs to confirm the prognostic significance of FF, by the multivariate analysis, employing the Cox proportional hazard regression model, as compared with well-known clinicopathological parameters.
