Abstract

One hundred cases of fibrocystic disease of breast were studied at Department of Pathology, King Edward Medical College, Lahore to find out its various morphological patterns. This includes both retrospective (80) and prospective (20) cases. The results are compared with those of other studies. Considering different morphological patterns, cystic dilatation of variable extent of mammary ducts and acini was the commonest feature (97%). Variable degrees of fibrosis was seen in 96% of patients while 34% showed the presence of epitheliosis and 26% apocrine metaplasia. In two cases (2%) myoepithelial hyperplasia, ¡n equal numbers (2%) mucous metaplasia was present. Not a single case showed adenosis. Lymphocytic infiltration of mammary interstitial tissue was present in 41% cases.
