Abstract Introduction: The letter from Badve [1] relating to the series on pre-invasive breast disease, published in the September and November issues of Breast Cancer Research [2-10], is timely and very welcome. It rightly points out that one should be careful in changing classification systems based on limited knowledge and that perhaps discarding the term atypical ductal hyperplasia at the present time may be premature. I completely agree with him; however, there are a few issues I feel obliged to clarify.
