Ductal features were defined as: (1) high-grade nuclei; (2) abundant and typically amphophilic cytoplasm; and (3) tall/pseudostratified cells arranged in papillary projections, discreet glands, or cribriform structures with intervening slit like lumen.
In MPS, these diffusely enlarged PVS affect the periventricular WM, corpus callosum, basal ganglia, subcortical WM, centrum semiovale, thalami and brain stem, resulting in the cribriform or spindle-like pattern.
High magnification revealed a typical endometrioid-like morphology characterized by areas of cribriform growth, punched-out lumens, sharp luminal borders, abundant pale and eosinophilic cytoplasm, and mostly low-grade nuclei (Figure 5, A and B).
The ameba enters the nasal passages, penetrates the nasopharyngeal mucosa, and migrates to the olfactory nerves, eventually invading the brain through the cribriform plate (1).
The frontal bone was removed, the bilateral olfactory bulbs were exposed, and the cribriform plate was identified.
Nevertheless the Euler number is of interest for a quantitative characterization of carcinoma tissue of glandular origin, because the Euler number is directly linked to fundamental pathological tumor properties such as solid architecture where ideally [chi square] > 0, tubular architecture where ideally [chi square] = 0, and cribriform architecture where ideally [chi square] < 0.
Tumors were classified as ductal carcinoma in situ with cribriform (Figure 5 B), papillary, or mixed pattern (cribriform and papillary) (Figure 5C).

The cribriform lesions did as badly as the solid or comedo lesions," she added.
If unchecked, infection can travel to the brain through the orbital apex, orbital vessels, or cribriform plate.
Within the frontal lobe, injury is usually just above the cribriform plate and lesser sphenoid wing.
