Medullary colorectal carcinoma is a rare type of colorectal carcinoma.
- Rare subtype of colorectal carcinoma.
- Typically has Microsatellite instability.
- Prognostic significance dependent on study.
- Poorly differentiated carcinoma:
- Noninfiltrative border.
- Solid pattern/nests.
- No gland formation.
- Lymphocytic infiltrate.
- Other (poorly differentiated) colorectal carcinomas.
- CDX2 +ve.
- Beta-catenin +ve.
- MLH1 loss of staining.
- CDX2, beta-catenin, MLH1 useful for differentiating from poorly differentiated colorectal carcinoma.
