Development of human breast carcinoma is characterized by abundant infiltration of lymphocytes into neoplastic tissue. Representative sections of normal, premalignant, and malignant breast assessed for the presence of CD4+ (upper panels) and CD8+ (middle panels) T lymphocytes (brown staining in panels), as well as CD20+ B lymphocytes (red staining in lower panels), demonstrating the extent of immune-cell infiltration into premalignant and malignant stroma. DCIS, ductal carcinoma in situ.
