Paper Abstract

Pleomorphic invasive lobular carcinoma (pILC) is a distinct morphological variant of invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC), which is more aggressive than classic invasive lobular carcinoma (cILC) with worse overall prognosis. It is critical to distinguish between pILC and cILC for management and treatment of patients. Multiphoton microscopy (MPM),based on two-photon excited fluorescence (TPEF) and second harmonic generation (SHG), produces subcellular resolution images to show detailed information on structure and cell morphology of tissue sections without staining. In this work, MPM was introduced for label-free identification of normal breast lobules, pILC and cILC, which is consistent with haematoxylin and eosin (H&E) staining. Furthermore, analysis of nuclear area is used to quantitatively reflect their cytological characteristic. These results demonstrate that, MPM has the ability to distinguish between normal breast lobules, cILC, and pILC by histopathological features, which can provide additional indicators to determine adequate treatment strategies of patients with pILC for pathologists and surgeons. In the future, MPM may be used as a diagnostic tool of lobular cancer into routine clinical use.
