This tumor shows a remarkable papillary architecture, arising from the surface epithelium and in general showing indolent biologic behavior.
For many decades it was assumed that HGSCs arise from the ovarian surface epithelium, but in 2001 this line of thinking was challenged by the identification of presumptive HGSC precursors--that is, serous tubal intraepithelial carcinomas (STICs), and occult HGSCs in the fallopian tubes of patients with germline BRCA1 mutations who were undergoing prophylactic surgery.
9] The World Health Organization histological classification of ovarian tumours separates ovarian neoplasms according to the most probable tissue of origin: surface epithelium (65%), germ cells (15%), sex-cord stromal tissue (10%), miscellaneous (5%) and tumours of metastatic origin (10%).
Mucosa was characterized by the reduced height of surface epithelium, flattened epitheliocytes in both surface and foveolar epithelium with nuclei displacement in central parts of the cells, and preservation of clear cell boundaries.
During this episode, the surface epithelium transformes into one-layer columnar epithelium (16-18).
And rather than esophagitis due to GERD being a top-down process, from surface epithelium to submucosa, multiple lines of evidence now suggest it is a bottom-up phenomenon sparked by activation of a hypoxia-inducible factor that occurs when esophageal epithelium is exposed to acidic bile salts, Rhonda Souza, MD, said at the meeting sponsored by the American Gastroenterological Association.
E-cadherin immunostaining was positive in the tumor cells, as well as in the surface epithelium, but not in the connective tissue.
