Bone marrow histology of a patient with breast cancer

Bone marrow histology of a patient with breast cancer

Bone marrow histology (immunohistochemistry with alkaline phosphatase reaction) of a patient with breast cancer: Carcinoma cells derive from epithelial cells that express cytokeratins in the cytoplasm. They were detected immunohistochemically with an antibody against cytokeratin 7 and visualised with a brownish stain. A megakaryocyte (->) has a size similar to the tumour cells, but is not labelled by this staining procedure.
