Microglandular adenosis with adjacent atypical lobular
The microglandular adenosis
(upper right) is a problematic diagnosis as it does not contain myoepithelial cells and therefore is difficult to differentiate from tubular carcinoma. Differentiation is thus made generally at low power on the apparent infiltrating character. Atypical lobular hyperplasia
(lower left) is noted by distended lobules with relatively benign-appearing cells.
