Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of glycogen-rich clear cell carcinoma (GRCC) which arose in the right breast of a 35-year-old Japanese woman is reported. Light microscopic examination of the tumor revealed solid alveolar proliferation of clear cells containing abundant glycogen. Electron microscopy identified aggregates of glycogen particles and numerous empty glycogen lakes. This case is reported with a discussion on the other 42 GRCC cases reported in the international literature.
