It is categorised under other epithelial lesions as sclerosing polycystic adenosis and considers sclerosing polycystic adenoma as a synonym. The evidence to state the lesion to be a neoplastic process rather than reactive is on the rise and consideration should be given based on the degree of dysplasia that it presents, 30% local recurrence rate and genetic alteration related to PI3K pathway and PTEN, a tumour suppressor gene. The major portion of the ductal proliferations retains the lobular architecture and is lined by a layer of myoepithelial cells with rar.. View More»
