Characteristically, the cells are arranged in large groups fenestrated by rudimentary duct-like spaces containing eosinophilic secretion, which is also PAS positive, diastase resistant. Smaller solid or fenestrated groups and papillary areas may also be seen, and occasionally foci of intraduct carcinoma are present. Prominent central hyalinizing fibrosis is also considered a feature of these tumors. The prognosis is thought to be excellent in children. 5 years), although, a few of these patients had axillary lymph-node metastases and local recurrences.

Normallobules are devoid of elastic 38 tissue. Elastosis is the presence of abnormal clumps of elastic tissue. These appear as eosinophilic hyaline acellular areas in sections stained with hematoxylin and eosin and can be differentially stained with special elastic stains. Elastosis is more commonly seen in association with carcinoma, but may also occur in benign breast lesions. It may be focal or diffuse in distribution, and focal elastosis may be periductal, perivascular, or stromal. Most commonly, the ducts surrounded by the clumps of elastic tissue are nonneoplastic.
