Figure 1.
Figure 1. Gastric biopsy. (a) Large tumor cells with solid growth pattern, large, pleomorphic nuclei and high nuclear-to-cytoplasmic ratios. There are scattered intratumoral lymphocytes but no significant peritumoral lymphocytosis (H&E, × 40). (b) Positive tumor staining for CAM5.2 (× 20). (c) Negative tumor staining for CDX-2 (× 20). (d) Positive tumor staining for PAX-8 (× 20).

Figure 2. Endometrial carcinoma. (a) Sharply demarcated regions of moderately and poorly differentiated carcinoma (H&E, × 20). (b) Poorly differentiated tumor component featuring solid growth pattern, large, pleomorphic nuclei, high nuclear-to-cytoplasmic ratios and necrosis (× 40). (c) Lymphovascular invasion by poorly differentiated component (× 40).
