No centrocyte-like cells or epimyoepithelial islands were observed in the lesions.
7] Hyjek et al[13] stated that the presence of a population of centrocyte-like cells around the epimyoepithelial islands was indicative of the emergence of B-cell monoclonalities.
Further characteristics include occasional intranuclear inclusions, or Dutcher bodies; crush artifact; periductal fibrosis; and ductal metaplasia that resembles epimyoepithelial islands.
