GCDFP-15 is a 15 kD glycoprotein which is localized in the apocrine metaplastic epithelium lining breast cysts and in apocrine glands in the axilla, vulva, eyelid, ear canal, and in salivary glands.1 GCDFP-15 positivity is seen in breast carcinomas.2,4-6 On the other hand, colorectal carcinomas, lung carcinoma, mesothelimas rarely stain with this antibody.3 Because of its specificity for breast carcinoma, this antibody is often helpful in distinguishing metastasis of unknown primary.4,6-10
