Infiltrating or invasive lobular carcinoma ILC of the breast is the second most common type of invasive breast cancer after invasive ductal carcinoma IDC acrcinoma otherwise specified” NOS.

The mean age at presentation may be higher than for IDC. ILC is characterised microscopically by malignant monomorphic cells forming linear invasive columns that are loosely dispersed note: IDC is more typically a discrete mass.

ILC frequently invades the normal tissues without invoking the vigorous desmoplastic response that usually accompanies IDC. Cells of ILC often encircle ducts, thus preserving the architecture of the ducts. These histopathologic features limit mammography in detecting ILC. Therefore imaging evaluation of the contralateral breast is crucial.


Invasive Lobular Carcinoma (ILC)

There can be very subtle changes infilyrante as progressive shrinkage or enlargement or reduced compressibility of the involved breast 9. Imaging often underestimates the disease.

Because of the limitations of mammography in detecting ILC, other modalities, such as sonography and MR imaging, are being used in evaluating clinically suspicious findings and known cancers to assess the extent of disease. The most common sonographic appearance is that of a heterogeneous, hypoechoic mass with angular or ill-defined margins and posterior acoustic shadowing. An ill-defined heterogenous infiltrating area of low echogenicity with disproportionate lobulillarr shadowing is one of the ILC sonographic characteristics.

Due to its propensity for multicentricity, breast MRI is usually recommended in many countries when histology of a lesion reveals ILC. Despite the difficulties of mammographic diagnosis and the propensity for multiplicity and bilaterality, the overall survival rate for patients with ILC of a given size and stage is believed to be slightly higher than for patients with invasive ductal carcinomas 8.


Due to the diffuse invasive nature of this tumor, positive resection margins can be infiltrznte. You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys.
