Breast Pathology and Immunohistochemistry

Immunohistochemistry has an important role in the pathology of breast disease, as well as in other benign or malignant tumours. Overall, immunotherapy holds several key advantages over conventional chemotherapeutic and targeted treatments directed at the tumour itself. First, immunotherapy generally results in fewer side effects, enabling it to be administered for longer periods of time and/or in combination with other agents without added toxicity. The principal function of immunohistochemistry of breast pathology is: Solving common diagnostic dilemmas e.g., Benign/malignant, Epithelial proliferations, in situ v micro invasion. Tumour typing and confirming diagnoses, such as: Tumour typing, subtle foci of invasion, Status of margins, Lymph node metastases, demonstrating epithelial cells in necrotic material. For confirmation of this diagnosis most frequently used immunostains in breast pathology are: Myoepithelial markers - CK 5/6; P63, Lobular v Ductal - E Cadherin, Receptors - ER; PGR and Her2.
