Diffusely Infiltrating Breast Cancer

This volume describes a breast cancer subtype that is a substantial challenge for the entire breast cancer team. The clinical, imaging and outcome observations indicate that diffusely infiltrating breast cancer represents a very unusual breast malignancy, regardless of whether it is E-cadherin negative or positive. All aspects of the diffusely infiltrating breast cancer suggest that it may have a site of origin different from all other breast cancers.

We propose that it originates from the mesenchymal stem cells/progenitors through a complex process of epithelial-mesenchymal transformation and predominantly mesenchymal-epithelial transformation. Control of this unusual malignancy requires new approaches to earlier detection and entirely new therapeutic innovations.
