  • peritoneal
  • proposed separating pseudomyxoma peritonei cases into two diagnostic categories: adenoma (disseminated peritoneal adenomucinosis, DPAM) or carcinoma (peritoneal mucinous carcinomatosis, PMCA) with a third category reserved for cases with intermediate features. (wikipedia.org)
  • In this classification system, cases of DPAM were characterized by peritoneal lesions composed of abundant extracellular mucin containing scant simple to focally proliferative mucinous epithelium with little cytologic atypia or mitotic activity (in other words, most cells looked fairly normal and there was no evidence of mitosis which would indicate that cells were rapidly dividing), with or without an associated appendiceal mucinous adenoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • mucosa
  • Bradley states that an adenoma, by definition, is a tumor confined to the appendiceal mucosa with absolutely no evidence of invasion beyond the muscularis mucosae. (wikipedia.org)
  • tumor
  • High tumor budding count is associated with adverse clinicopathologic features and poor prognosis in breast carcinoma. (emory.edu)
  • Significance
  • However, the distinction between a cystic carcinoma (i.e., cystadenocarcinoma) and one that is not cystic has not been shown to be of biologic significance. (springer.com)
  • grade
  • The following grading scheme is currently recommended for all gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms by the World Health Organisation: If mitotic count and ki67 are discordant, the figure which gives the highest grade is used. (wikipedia.org)
