Intracystic Papillary Carcinoma of Breast - A Case Report

Dr. Mohit Roy | Dr. Poonam Kumari Mishra

Abstract: Intracystic papillary carcinoma is a rare malignant tumor of breast. It occurs communally in postmenopausal women. Clinically it can be asymptomatic or manifest by a breast mass or a nipple discharge. On imaging intracystic papillary carcinoma has usually benign features. Pathological diagnosis can be difficult at classical histological examination and identification of myoepithelial cells layer by immunohistochemical study can be useful. In majority of cases of pure intracystic papillary carcinoma, conservative treatment is possible. Adjuvent therapy is still controversial and prognosis is excellent. I report one case of Intracystic Papillary Carcinoma diagnosed cytologically and further confirmed by histopathological examination.
