The main structures observed were tunica albuginea, interstitial cells, germinative epithelium, sustentacular cells, and spermatogonias.
The chief cells are positive for synaptophysin and chromogranin, and the sustentacular cells are positive for S100.
As a result, the team was able to trace the paths that cells take as they turn into sustentacular cells - which seems to be the default fate for olfactory stem cells - and into neurons and other types of cells.
Immu- nohistochemically, S100 positive sustentacular cells are not seen as seen in our study in ONB.
The key diagnostic features in this case include a trabecular growth pattern, sustentacular cells surrounding nests of tumor cells, neuroendocrine features with copious cytoplasm, and nuclear expression of TTF-1.
Pathologic examination reveals a characteristic biphenotypic cell line composed of chief cells and sustentacular cells with a peripheral fibrovascular stromal layer that are organized into a whorled (Zellballen) pattern.
Paragangliomas will show positivity for neuron-specific enolase, chromogranin A and synaptophysin as well as S100 protein positivity for sustentacular cells and are negative for thyroglobulin and calcitonin.
Sustentacular cells were positive for S-100 protein (Figure 2C), but negative for high molecular cytokeratins, monoclonal CEA.
Phaeochromocytoma was finally excluded due to the presence of a basophilic cytoplasm and the obvious absence of S100 positive sustentacular cells.
