Abstract

Solid papillary carcinoma (SPC) is an uncommon breast tumor whose prognosis depends on invasive component. We studied clinicopathological features of SPC by reviewing 65 cases. Invasive component was seen in 75.4% cases. Almost all tumors with grade III nuclei had invasive component. Mean patients' age of invasive tumors was significantly higher than that of non-invasive tumors (P = .036). All patients were alive and disease free except for a single patient who developed distant metastasis and died of disease. SPC have excellent clinical course. Careful search for invasive component is mandatory, especially in tumors with older patient's age and higher nuclear grade.
