The cells lining tubules, cysts, and papillae are cuboidal to low columnar with scant pale cytoplasm (Figure 1, A and B).
Under the microscope, eccrine hidrocystomas appear as unilocular cysts, which usually contain a single cystic cavity composed of 1 or 2 layers of cuboidal cells.
13) The epithelial component is typically composed of small tubules lined by columnar or cuboidal cells, and the tumor may demonstrate rosetting, tubular, and papillary patterns.
Cysts lined with stratified squamous epithelium and simple cuboidal epithelium have also been observed.
This tumor was composed of tubulocystic and papillary glands lined by glycogen-rich, cuboidal, or hobnail cells with clear to eosinophilic cytoplasm.
Most of the epithelia in the two areas were pseudostratified cylindrical ciliated epithelium with goblet cells (respiratory epithelium), stratified cuboidal epithelium, and stratified squamous nonkeratinized epithelium.
23) Consistent with the immunohistochemistry results, the cuboidal cells were shown to express cytokeratin, epithelial membrane antigen, surfactant, and TTF-1.
The cuboidal cells lining the pseudopapillae were strongly positive for glial fibrillary acidic protein [GFAP, [Figure 1]e and vimentin but were negative for neuron-specific enolase (NSE) and neuronal nuclear antigen [NeuN, [Figure 1]f, suggesting glial differentiation.
