Representative example of CD4+, CD8+, FOXP3+ tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes and PD-L1+ immune cell infiltration in in situ and invasive components in a hormone receptor-negative tumor. CD8+ tumor-infiltrating lymphocyte (TIL) and PD-L1+ immune cell (IC) infiltration is significantly higher in the invasive component compared to the in situ component while CD4+ TIL infiltration is high in both components with no significant difference. FOXP3+ TILs are rarely found in both invasive and in situ components in this case
