Characterization of tubular adenoma of breast--diagnostic problem in fine needle aspirates (FNAs).
Cytopathology. 1998 Oct; 9(5):301-7.C

Abstract

FNA smears from six histologically documented cases of tubular adenoma of breast were critically analysed and compared with 10 histologically confirmed cases of fibroadenoma (five pericanalicular and five intracanalicular). Initially a cytological diagnosis of tubular adenoma was rendered only in one case. On review, two cases could be characterized as tubular adenoma, while the findings were suggestive in two others. The features helpful in diagnosis of tubular adenoma were the presence of benign ductal cells as three-dimensional cohesive balls and tubular structures in highly cellular smears. Stroma was conspicuously scanty or absent. Myoepithelial cells were present along with sheets of ductal cells as well as bipolar naked nuclei. Confusion with fibroadenoma occurred in two cases due to presence of a stag-horn pattern of ductal cells.
