Broders' classification

Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Encyclopedia.

Broders’ classification

An eponym dignifying the grading of histologic differentiation of cancer, where grade 1 is well differentiated and grade 4 is poorly differentiated.

The Broder’s classification has fallen into disuse, as pathologists divide adenocarcinomas into three grades:
I   Well differentiated.
II  Moderately differentiated.
III Poorly differentiated.
