The enucleated specimen was sent for histopathologic examination which showed stratified squamous epithelium
of 5-8 cell layer thickness, with a corrugated parakeratin layer and flat epithelial connective tissue interface.
Microscopic examination of the excised tissue revealed a dense cellular connective tissue stroma with many osteoid deposits and few small basophilic calicific deposits covered by parakeratinized stratified squamous epithelium
Why wouldn't you expect to see stratified squamous epithelium
forming the small intestine, or simple cuboidal epithelium forming the external genitalia?
Since 90 percent of OPCs develop in the lining stratified squamous epithelium
as squamous cell carcinoma, early recognition can be enhanced through accessible signs and symptoms.
1,3) The lining epithelia vary considerably, although stratified squamous epithelium
is most commonly found.
The penile epithelium is a stratified squamous epithelium
about 20-30 cells thick, whereas the cervical epithelium is a mucosal epithelium, 6-8 cells thick.
In pet birds, the sinuses extend into the upper beak and are connected by a transverse canal lined rostrally by stratified squamous epithelium
and caudally by alternating rows of ciliated ceils and intraepithelial mucous glands.
Operators can noninvasively see stratified squamous epithelium
, basement membrane, and lamina propria.
The human vaginal epithelium is well-supplied with HIV-receptive Langerhans cells, overlain by a stratified squamous epithelium
Histopathological examination revealed mature stratified squamous epithelium
, increased fibrocollagenous tissue in the stroma, thickened blood vessels, stellate shaped fibroblast and sparse perivascular chronic mononuclear inflammatory infiltrate, squamous epidermis with the underlying stroma showing increase in fibrocollagenous; no evidence of malignancy.
The whole surface is covered by keratinised stratified squamous epithelium
