IDC Type: Mucinous Carcinoma of the Breast

Imaging findings and accuracy of core needle biopsy in mucinous carcinoma of the breast. The signal intensity is variable on T1-weighted images and with strong signal similar to that of water or vessels on T2-weighted images Figure 3. Diagnosis and natural history of extramammary tumors metastatic to the breast. The present essay is aimed at describing the most characteristic imaging findings of mucinous carcinoma of the breast, with emphasis on the patterns related to better prognosis.

IDC Type: Mucinous Carcinoma of the Breast

Metastases to the breast are very rare. Mucinous carcinoma is extremely rare in men.


Grimelius staining an agryophilic silver stain denotes neuroendocrine differentiation. Craniocaudal view demonstrating nodule with microlobulated margins in the medial quadrant of the right breast, diagnosed as pure MMC. In one published report, 11 of 30 mucinous breast carcinomas showed mucinous atypical hyperplasia and in situ ductal carcinoma.

Scroll to see all images: Highly cellular, loosely cohesive clusters and dissociated cells with intact cytoplasm and nuclei with mild atypia, no oval bare nuclei Also thin walled capillaries, micropapillary pattern of angulated clusters or abortive papillae and ball-like clusters Acta Cytol ; The progressive enhancement pattern is related to the tumor cellularity, nuclear grading, and amount of extracellular mucin.

Axial MRI STIR image of the described nodule, demonstrating intense hypersignal onT2-weighted sequence with hypointense septa, common findings in mucinous carcinomas. The greater mcuinoso amount of mucin, the better the prognosis is 6. Frozen biopsy revealed metastasis to the breast from a mucosecretor adenocarcinoma with “signet ring cells” possibly of colonic origin. A simple mastectomy without lymphadenectomy was performed, assuming an extended metastatic disease to the breast.

Unable to process the form. Metastases to the breast from extramamary carcinomas. A year-old woman was diagnosed in with an adenocarcinoma of the right colon, and a right hemicolectomy was performed.

In children, rhabdomyosarcoma is the tumor most commonly associated with breast metastasis 8. The classic mammographic finding is a rounded, well-circumscribed mass. Clusters of tumor cells. Mixed mucinous tumors may exhibit lower ADC values, similarly to other breast cancer subtypes. The retroperitoneal mass was treated with radiotherapy. Overall jucinoso tendency to metastasize is less than for other types of cancer e. Check for errors and try again.


Mucinous carcinoma of the breast: a case report and review of the literature.

Some studies have found that the average age at diagnosis is in the 60s or early 70s. Posterior acoustic enhancement is common. Because of different patterns of mammogram and mams, both should be performed in all cases of MCB and in some equivocal cases breast MRI is of great value.

Contributed by Mark R. Can MR imaging contribute in characterizing well-circumscribed breast carcinomas? Diffusion-weighted imaging of mucinous carcinoma of the breast: Pure type shows indolent growth, while the mixed type presents variable biological behavior, sometimes similar to NS-IDCs Histologically, such variant is characterized by a tumor-like arrangement of neoplastic cells involved by extracellular muciinoso, in most cases associated with peripheral ductal carcinoma in situ DCIS 6.
