The aims are to asses the different expression of ER, PR, HER2 and Ki-67 between primary tumor and the recurrence and theirs prognostic consequences.


Observational retrospective unicentric study of 45 breast cancer patients. We have two different populations: patients who have a local and complete resected relapse (LR) and patients with a metastatic biopsied disease (MD).The changes in ER, PR, HER2 and Ki-67 between the pathologist report of primary tumor and the biopsy of the relapse have been analyzed. We studied ER, PR, HER2 and Ki-67 determined in the relapse as prognostic factor for relapse free survival (RFS) and overall survival (OS) in the LR group, and for progression-free survival (PFS) and OS in MD group.


The conversion rate of 34,8% for Ki-67 (p = 0,046), 20% for ER (p = 0,001), 20% for PR (p 


We observed a significative conversion rate in Ki-67, ER, PR and HER2 between primary breast cancer and relapse. We saw that ER- in the local relapse or metastasis, as well as a PR- in the metastasis were associated with a worse prognosis.
