growth is highly predictive for postoperative metastasis and disease-specific death in Gleason score 7 prostate cancer.
(1) Unlike the cribriform
pattern, only a few studies have specifically investigated glomeruloid glands, although the aggregate evidence to date supports classifying these glands as GP 4.
Fortunately, the histological analysis showed mainly cribriform
and tubular patterns without peripheral nerve invasion, which may lead to a better prognosis.
In the present case, cribriform
and tubular types are identified.
It can have a variety of histological appearances including flat, tufted micropapillary and cribriform
Histological features previously reported for HGD such as nuclear pleomorphism, loss of nuclear polarity, architectural complexity (cribriform
glands and/or papillary configuration), and stratification reaching more than half way of the crypt epithelium thickness  were also evaluated by the Chinese reviewers in this study.
The biopsy reported a carcinoma with cribriform
xanthomatous phenotype (Figure 4).
Caption: FIGURE 1: Nests and cribriform
structures of variable size and shape, separated by moderate amount of fibrotic dense stroma (H&E; 50x).
There are 3 histological types of ACC, that is, cribriform
, tubular, and solid.
A 52-year-old Caucasian male with a past medical history of hypertension presented to our hospital for planned resection of a large skull base mass of the right cribriform
plate by the neurosurgery service.
histological pattern has been attributed to tumors showing an architecture made of straight packed glands with not uniform distributed lumina, without interposed stromal tissue [1, 2].
Papillary carcinomas may histopathologically show papillary, micropapillary, cribriform
, reticular, and solid appearance.
