Dhiraj B Nikumbh, Shivraj N Kanthikar, Akshay Surana.


Tubulo-lobular carcinoma is a rare variant of mammary carcinoma that displays an admixture of invasive tubules and lobular like cells. It accounts for 1% of breast cancers with dual growth pattern of tubular carcinoma and invasive lobular carcinoma. Tubulo-lobular carcinoma appears to be rare aggressive tumour than tubular carcinoma, but with overall good prognosis. Herein we report a case of 60-year-old female with right breast mass since 4 months. Histopathologically proved as Tubulo-lobular carcinoma; an unusual mixed invasive carcinoma o the breast. We highlight the importance of histopathology for diagnosis of such rare tumours of breast in view of its mixed histopathology and uncertain biological behaviour. Hence better understanding of Tubulo-lobular carcinoma would enable pathological diagnosis to be made regularly and accurately.

Key words: Tubulo-Lobular Carcinoma; Breast Cancer; Mixed Carcinoma
