  1. Image Upload
    Lymphoma- MANY lymphoblast cells with prominent nucleoli
  2. Image Upload
    Eosinophilic inflammation (> 15% Eos)- think allergy, parasite, etc.
  3. Image Upload
    Mast cell- Mast cell tumors are common in dogs but we will also see them in inflammatory reactions, especially in skin, airway or reproductive tract. Remember that they are characterized by large numbers of purple granules and abundant cytoplasm.
  4. Image Upload
    Lymph node aspirate
    Epitheliod cells in the lymph node is an inappropriate place for them to be. SCC metastasized to l.n.
  5. Image Upload
    Epitheliod cell pleomorphism. Much variability- signs of malignancy
  6. Image Upload
    Normal epitheliod cells. Uniform. Exceptions: Round cell tumors with be uniform.
  7. Image Upload
    Monotonous population of cells. Fibrosarcoma in a dog.
  8. Image Upload
    Epitheliod cells of a SCC. Inflammation is not typically present with the exception of SCC's because of keratin stimulation of an inflammatory rxn.
  9. Image Upload
    Cellular piling (may suggest malignancy)
  10. Image Upload
    Large, abnormal nuclei with abnormally clumped chromatin. Signs of malignancy.
  11. Image Upload
    Multiple, large nucleoli= malignancy
  12. Image Upload
    Multiple, large nucleoli= malignancy
  13. Image Upload
    Multiple, large nucleoli= malignancy
  14. Image Upload
    Cellular piling and variability= malignancy
  15. Image Upload
    Abnormal mitotic figures= malignancy
  16. Image Upload
    Abnormal mitotic figures= malignancy
  17. Image Upload
  18. Image Upload
