6] Usual cells which participate in the granuloma formation are epithelioid cells, macrophages and lymphocytes but mast cells also have been observed in such lesions.
The epithelioid cell in tuberculosis is secretory and not a macrophage.
Angiomyolipomas (AMLs) are the most common mesenchymal renal neoplasms and are classified as neoplasms of perivascular epithelioid cells (PEComa).
H&E staining of the specimen revealed non-necrotizing, noncaseating granulomatous inflammatory structures comprised of epithelioid cells and Langhans giant cells with lymphocytic infiltration within reticular dermis, consistent with sarcoidosis (Figure 2).
This observation clearly suggests that when necrosis is seen with or without neutrophils, tuberculosis should be considered and epithelioid cells looked for.
Nowadays, GISTs may be defined as morphologically spindle cells, epithelioid cells, or occasional pleomorphic mesenchymal tumors originating from interstitial cells of Cajal or related stem cell expressing CD-117/C-kit protein in 95% of the cases regardless of the site of origin, histological appearance, and biological behavior.
Upper dermis shows tuberculoid granulomas consisting of epithelioid cells and multinucle- ated giant cells mainly of Langhans type with sparse or no central caseation within the tuber- cle9 along with abundant lymphocytic infiltra- tion.
Histopathological examination by the hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) staining demonstrated non-caseating epithelioid cell granulomas, typical of granulomatous conditions (Figs.
Abstract: Hyalinizing spindle and epithelioid cell nevus (Spitz nevus) is an uncommon melanocytic lesion.
Histopathology from the skin lesion demonstrated multiple epithelioid cell granulomas in the dermis, with no acid fast bacillus (AFB), which was consistent with the diagnosis of borderline tuberculoid leprosy.
3) In recent years there have also been at least 8 reported cases of perivascular epithelioid cell tumour (PEComa) of the bladder.
