Salivary duct carcinoma (SDC) is a rare, aggressive malignancy that histologically resembles high-grade mammary duct carcinoma. Because of the rarity of this entity, data verifying the association between histologic features and patient survival are limited. We conducted a comprehensive histologic review of 151 SDC cases and performed an analysis of the association between various histomorphologic parameters and the clinical outcome with the aim of developing a histologic risk stratification model that predicts the prognosis of SDC patients. A multivariate analysis revealed that prominent nuclear pleomorphism (overall survival [OS]: P=0.013; progression-free survival [PFS]: P=0.019), ≥30 mitoses/10 HPF (PFS: P=0.013), high tumor budding (OS: P=0.011; PFS: P < 0.001), and high poorly differentiated clusters (OS: P < 0.001; PFS: P < 0.001) were independent prognostic factors. Patients with vascular invasion demonstrated a marginal... More of this in the The American Journal of Surgical Pathology Blog.
