    The value of two different systems for the prognostic assessment of breast cancer has been tested by comparing a group of 74 long-term survivors with a group of 54 short-term survivors. The system devised by Bloom and Richardson (1957) gave a good general correlation with prognosis. Appearances described by Harveit (1971) showed some correlation with prognosis but were rarely seen in our cases. The degree of lympho-plasmacytic infiltrate did not show any correlation with prognosis.
