intraductal proliferations of the breast
Atypical intraductal hyperplasia is the midpoint between the benign and malignant poles of this proliferative continuum.
By defining the histological criteria for atypical intraductal hyperplasia , distinction from ordinary intraductal hyperplasia and the non-comedo forms of ductal carcinoma in situ becomes easier.
Histopathologic criteria have been defined for atypical intraductal hyperplasia , ductal carcinoma in situ DCIS, and intraductal hyperplasia and their relative risks for the development of invasive breast carcinoma.
