Estrogen and Progesterone Receptor Status in Breast Carcinoma: Correlation with Age and Histopathology
BELKIS ERBAř, H. LANGHAMMER, G. SONDERHAUS, R. BUSH

Estrogen and progesterone receptor status of 305 patients with breast carcinoma were evaluated retrospectively. Correlations between receptor status with age and histopathology were discussed. Sixty five percent of patients had estrogen receptor positive and 57% of patients had progesterone receptor negative tumors. Both receptors were positive in 49% of patients. Thirty percent of the study group had negative results for both receptors. Twenty one percent of patients had either positive estrogen or progesterone receptor. Our results indicate that there is a tendency for patients over 50 years to be more hormone receptor positive than those under 50 years. Hormone receptor status did not correlate with the histopathological type.
