Abstract

We present a case of breast mucinous carcinoma with micropapillary pattern, which shows cytologic features equivalent to those seen in both mucinous carcinoma and micropapillary carcinoma. Subsequent histology further confirms the diagnosis. It is possible that this peculiar morphologic subtype and its clinical significance have been under-recognized.
