As opposed to dVIN, it shows organized maturation of squamous epithelial cells
with overlying hyperkeratosis.
(1) Cytologic FNA demonstrated numerous keratinized, anucleate, squamous epithelial cells
admixed with abundant eosinophilic, granular noncellular material.
A large number of squamous epithelial cells
were visible even in the stroma of the tissue.
Inadequate smears were those with only haemorrhagic material or only sparse benign squamous epithelial cells
The presence of mucous cells and ciliated cells in epithelial lining of odontogenic cysts is a metaplastic change, in which squamous epithelial cells
are replaced by mucous cells.
Cytological examination revealed that both control and vehicle mice had normal estrous cyclicity and showed different stages of the cycle containing proestrus (round, nucleated epithelial cells), estrus (cornified squamous epithelial cells
), metestrus (cornified squamous epithelial cells
and predominance of leukocytes), and diestrus (predominance of leukocytes) (Table 1).
Histologically, the mass consisted of solid and papillary proliferation of atypical squamous epithelial cells
A biopsy performed from the margin of the ulcer showed keratin pearls, nuclear hyperchromatism and pleomorphism with increased nucleocytoplasmic ratio of the squamous epithelial cells
confirming it as well-differentiated keratinizing SCC (Figure 3).
Specimen adequacy was assessed based on the presence of adequate number of squamous epithelial cells
; an adequate conventional smear should contain minimum of approximately 8000 to 12,000 well-preserved and well-visualized squamous epithelial cells
Only sputum samples with <10 squamous epithelial cells
per low power field (LPF) and more than 25 leucocytes or polymorphonuclear cells (PMN) per LPF were accepted for Gram stain and culture.[sup] Some studies indicated that a specimen containing <25 PMN/LPF is likewise considered adequate or suitable in the presence of neutropenic state.
revealed proliferating squamous epithelial cells
. The multiplying cells were seen in form of islands, the formation typical keratin pearl was observed in centre of these islands (Fig.
Thin germinal epithelium containing 1-2 layers of squamous epithelial cells
was observed in the cortex, while testicular cords, the future seminiferous tubules, were noticed in the medulla (Fig.
