This study investigates whether the proliferative activity of giant cell tumour of tendon sheath is related to its recurrence rate and local aggressiveness. The clinicopathological and immunohistochemical features of 30 localized giant cell tumours of tendon sheath were studied and the influence of the MIB-1 staining index on recurrence, tumour extent around the phalanx and involvement of the bone were evaluated. No significant difference in the MIB-1 staining index was found between the… CONTINUE READING
