They are characterized by epithelioid cells with clear to eosinophilic cytoplasm and are often arranged around delicate fibrous septa and blood vessels.
Epithelioid AML, the second group of renal AMLs, are composed of sheets of epithelioid cells that can behave aggressively, with the potential for metastasis and resultant adjuvant therapy.
This unusual pattern of spindled and epithelioid cells caused diagnostic difficulty largely because it was the predominant histologic pattern in the splenic tumor and this pattern had not been noted in the primary ovarian and peritoneal tumors.
In some areas, epithelioid cells with moderate amounts of eosinophilic cytoplasm were seen as a minor component (figure 2, C).

These epithelioid cells secrete more than 40 cytokines and mediators, including angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE).
There were many ganglion-like cells, spindle cells and epithelioid cells in the lesion.
Less frequently, the epithelioid cells were associated with prominent cytoplasmic vacuolization, suggesting mucin production and/or glandular differentiation.
Histopathology of the parotid mass revealed that it was made up of a group of lymph nodes whose architecture was preserved; the mass contained a proliferation of histiocytes, hyperplastic follicles, enlarged germinal centers, and epithelioid cells with abundant, pale eosinophilic cytoplasm (figure 2).
