br Conclusion br In conclusion MpBC
In conclusion, MpBC is a rare entity among breast carcinomas in Poland, which is similar to the reports of MpBC from all over the world. It comprises of a heterogeneous and histologically diverse group of cancers consisting of epithelial and mesenchymal ele-ments. Most of MpBCs present with poor prognostic indicators and show lack of steroid hormone receptors Thapsigargin (ER, PR) as well as HER2. Due to the rarity of the disease, poorer prognosis and sub-optimal response to systemic therapies further research is needed for formulating comprehensive treatment plans. Also more data on the biologic characteristic of MpBC may allow us to understand the reason why it presents differently from other invasive breast cancer types in the term of clinicopathology.
