Blue Cell Tumour

(redirected from Blue Cell Tumor)
A usually malignant tumour, the cells of which are arranged in nests, sheets, and masses, and composed of relatively monotonous, round-to-oval, 8–15-µm in diameter cells with poorly defined cytoplasmic borders and strongly basophilic—blue—by H&E staining nuclei; embryologic origin often requires ancillary information provided by histologic pattern, immunohistochemistry, and rarely electron microscopy
