Carcinomes canalaires in situ: données anatomo-pathologiques actuelles [Ductal carcinoma in situ: current anatomo-pathologic data]
Revue Médicale De La Suisse Romande
Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), accounting for 15-25% of all breast cancers, is frequently diagnosed by mammographic examination. This heterogeneous disease requires a rigorous local treatment based, in about two-third of cases, on conservative surgery and radiotherapy. DCIS are currently classified on the basis of nuclear grade. Most lesions, and especially high nuclear grade DCIS, are limited to one quadrant. Micropapillary DCIS are likely to be of larger size/extent and thus a conservative approach is often difficult. A careful pathological examination of an oriented excisional biopsy is a pre-requisite for optimal therapy.
