AbstractAim: To determine the pathognomonic diagnostic cytological features of invasive micropapillary carcinoma of the breast which is a poor prognostic subtype of infiltrating ductal carcinoma. Methods: A series of 20 histologically proven tumours were reviewed retrospectively to evaluate the various cytological features, including tumour morules, isolated malignant cells, staghorn epithelial structures, mucinous background and apocrine metaplasia. Results: Tumour morules formation and isolated malignant cells were the two most reliable and constant cytological features, being present in 75% (15/20 cases) of cases. Staghorn epithelial structures were present in 35% (7 cases). Mucinous background (2 cases, 10%) and apocrine metaplasia (4 cases, 20%) of the tumour cells were seen in a few cases only and did not appear very helpful. Conclusion: Tumour morules formation, isolated malignant cells and staghorn epithelial structures are the most reliable cytological features, and the presence of these should raise suspicion of invasive micropapillary carcinoma. © 2007 Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia.
