Microscopic Description: The sample of haired skin demonstrates polypoid epidermal elevation over a nodular dermal sheet of hypertrophic, mildly variable neoplastic spindle-cells. These have oval/elongate finely chromatic nuclei with 1 mitotic form/10hpf and moderate eosinophilic cytoplasm. Within the mass the cells form numerous small clefts and channels often red-cell filled and occasionally supported by fine hyalinized stromal septa.
Microscopic Findings: Left Tarsus, Skin - Hemangiosarcoma.
Comment: The tumor is considered a Grade 1 Sarcoma and Stage 1 Hemangiosarcoma. The excision is complete (0.2cm margins) and should offer a locally favorable prognosis. Follow-up monitoring for possible future independent development similar masses at other sites may still be advised.
What are these words? hypertrophic, neoplastic, eosinophilic, hyalinized, septa. WTH, why can't they use easy little words so my brain can understand!
