Grading of Prostatic Carcinomas-Current Status 41 In a letter to the Editors, Byar (1983) made some interesting comments on the Guinan et al. report. Cutting the Gleason score between 6 and 7 rather than between 5 and 6, the accuracy rate of the Gleason system would be greater than that reported for the Broders system (85% vs 76%), From the data presented, Byar calculated the sensitivity of the Gleason system to be greater than that of the Broders system (87% vs 62%). This would mean that of patients whose cancers are known to have progressed, a much greater proportion were Gleason's 6-10 than Broders III and IV.

Pistenma et al. (1979) and Bagshaw (1984) have claimed that when Gleason patterns were less than 5, no positive lymph nodes were present. On the other hand, Olsson (1985) reported nodal involvement in 20% or more of patients with Gleason 2-4 primary lesions. Furthermore, a large proportion (nearly 40%) of patients with Gleason's 8-10 primary tumors do not have lymph node spread. Smith and Middleton (1985) reported that of patients with well differentiated tumors, 6% had gross and 9% had microscopic lymph node disease.
