    Tumors showing TRK (tropomyosin receptor kinase) gene fusion

    Recent molecular studies have revealed that,  several tumors harbor TRK fusion. However fusion frequencies vary.  Several NTRK1/2/3 (neurotrophic tyrosine receptor kinase) fusions have been reported. It is important to identify them since they serve as potential targets for therapy The NTRK1, 2, and 3 genes encode a family of tyrosine kinase receptors with an active […]

Micropapillary carcinoma of breast has a few unique clinical, microscopic and immunological features which aid in their differentiation from other subtypes of breast carcinoma. Let’s look at them!! 1. Tufts of cells arranged in pseudopapillae ( lack fibrovascular cores). These pseudopapillae are surrounded by empty clear spaces formed […]
