Cystosarcoma phylloides. A steroid receptor and ultrastructure analysis.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Six cases of cystosarcoma phylloides were evaluated by ultrastructure and steroid receptor analysis. Electron microscopy of the lesions supported previous reports of a heterogeneous tumor consisting of pleomorphic mesenchyme and normal or proliferative epithelium. In each case estrogen and progesterone receptor analysis indicated the presence of a nonsaturable estrogen and progesterone 4S binding protein rather than a specific steroid receptor as suggested by previous studies.
