Breast cancer prognosis is related to different factors including age, tumor size, grade, histologic type, lymphatic vessel invasion (LVI), lymph node metastasis, and expression of hormone receptors.[1],[2] Among them, LVI and lymph node metastasis are the main prognostic factors in patient's survival.[1],[5] Furthermore, LVI plays a critical rule in cancer metastasis.[2] It is considered as an independent prognostic factor in lymph node-negative patients with mortality of breast cancer increases from 29% to 53% in node-negative patients with LVI.[2],[6],[7] This emphasizes the importance of correct detection of LVI.
