The authors analyzed clinicopathologic characteristics, mucin gene expression profiles, microsatellite instability, and status of the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) in 133 mucinous gastric carcinomas (MGCs) and compared them with the same variables in nonmucinous gastric carcinomas (NMGCs). The results indicated that clinicopathologic and molecular characteristics of MGCs differ from those of NMGCs and that EGFR overexpression and histologic subtyping by predominant tumor cell type in mucin pools may be helpful for predicting clinical outcome in patients with MGC.
