Question: malignancy

Anonymous - Sun Sep 07, 2003 7:01 am

I would like to know differential diagnoses of a tumour with plasmacytoid cells. :roll: :roll:

Plasmacytoid cells are Hyaline cells - so wherever you have those kind of cells you would have those types of cancers. Head and Neck cancers would be the majority. Salivary gland pleomorphic adenoma is another, as well as cutaneous myoepithelioma. Can't think of others, but I would consult a good histology book for location of those cells.
