Abstract

There were significant differences in the phenotypic expression of adenoma and adenocarcinoma between villous and tubular tumours, respectively. Villous tumours have a pathway of malignant transformation different from that of tubular tumours. Because of biological differences, colorectal villous tumours should be distinguished from tubular neoplasia. The analysis of the phenotype of colorectal neoplasms is useful for the evaluation of tumour progression.
