The spectrum of neoplastic cells found in MIFS varies within and among tumors.
The predominant population of neoplastic cells were polygonal with distinct cell borders, a moderate amount of eosinophilic to amphophilic lacy cytoplasm, and an irregularly round to oval nucleus possessing vesiculate chromatin and 1-2 prominent nucleoli.
14 CD 10 is related with differentiation and growth of neoplastic cells, and its expression is found to be increased with the increase of tumor dysplasia.
Nevertheless, the confirmation of HL requires morphologic diagnosis of the neoplastic cells with the appropriate cellular background along with the result of immunophenotyping as cells resembling Reed-Sternberg cells can be found in cases of B and T lymphomas, melanomas, sarcoma, and in some reactive conditions such as infectious mononucleosis, which are common in populations across the globe (6).
Mild and diffuse AMACR positivity is seen in nearly all neoplastic cells (immunoperoxidase, x200).
Multiple section studied shows tumour composed of neoplastic cells arranged in sheets, cords, tubules, cribriform, lobules and solid patterns (Figure 3).
Pathological evaluation showed parathormone negative, chromogranin positive stained neoplastic cells that eventually proved to be a carcinoid tumor.
ECC lungs bypass could break a physiologic barrier against systemic diffusion of neoplastic cells.
The disease is characterized by the infiltration of neoplastic cells with enlarged nuclei and high nuclear-to-cytoplasmic volume ratios.
Neoplastic cells showed enlarged and prominent nuclei.
Antineoplastic drugs encompass several medications that control or kill neoplastic cells.
However, some neoplasms like classical Hodgkin's lymphoma (cHL) can present with prominent histiocytic/epithelioid cell infiltrates, and neoplastic cells can be extremely scanty.
