Genetic, transcriptional, and clinical heterogeneity of disease has remained to be a prominent obstacle to the development of a targeted therapeutic approach against TNBC. So far, based on tumor size, lymph node status, and histologic features TNBC subtypes were stratified. Insights into inter and intratumoral heterogeneity of TNBC were gained by next-generation sequencing, genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and clinicopathological characterization. To depict tumor response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy, radiological characterization may also a play significant role. Biomarkers for subtyping TNBC were highly needed to depict the survival outcome. This chapter discussed the available and possible molecular and pathological diagnostic approaches to TNBC. Furthermore, the integration of morphological and genomic data may emerge as a promising approach for the identification of new therapeutic and prognostic markers to predict the likely outcome of the disease. This chapter aims to highlight the molecular and pathological diagnostic approaches to depict both metastatic and non-metastatic TNBC.
