Department of Pathology, Tata Memorial Hospital, Parel, Mumbai-400012, India.Indian Journal of Pathology and Microbiology (Impact Factor: 0.47). 01/2009; 52(1):83-5. DOI: 10.4103/0377-4929.44974
Radial scars or complex sclerosing lesions are common benign lesions in the breast with characteristic radiological and pathological features. The pathological diagnosis of carcinoma arising in this setting requires careful amalgamation of clinical, radiological and morphological details. Ancillary techniques like immunohistochemistry aid in the diagnosis. We report an unusual case of a secretory carcinoma arising in the background of a radial scar.
