Tubulolobular carcinoma is a type of mammary carcinoma that displays an admixture of invasive tubules and lobular-like cells. Previous reports have shown it to share clinical similarities to lobular carcinoma, whereas more recent studies have shown it to be E-cadherin positive. The aim of the current study was to further explore the immunophenotype of tubulolobular carcinoma, and to document its natural behavior. Nineteen cases of tubulolobular carcinoma and 10 cases each of tubular and lobular… CONTINUE READING
