Although histologic grading of breast carcinoma is widely practiced by most pathologists, cytologic grading of fine-needle aspirates (FNA) of this neoplasm is not commonly done. This study addresses the issue of the accuracy of a new classification system, a simplified Nuclear Grading (NG) system based on the criteria proposed by Black et al. (Surg Gynecol Obstet 1955;100:543) in FNA of breast carcinoma. We reviewed 100 cases of breast carcinoma, initially diagnosed by fine-needle aspiration… CONTINUE READING
