5) Morphologically, papillary RCCs are composed predominately of papillary or tubulopapillary structures lined by small, cuboidal cells with basophilic cytoplasm or by larger cells with eosinophilic cytoplasm.
Morphologically, pyloric gland metaplasia shows small branching glands that are composed of columnar or cuboidal cells with abundant bubbly cytoplasm.
The malignant glands were lined by a single layer of cuboidal cells with enlarged nuclei, prominent nucleoli, and abundant pale cytoplasm; no basal cell layer was identified.
14-16) Rare, true glandular lumina composed of cuboidal cells showing ductal differentiation can also be found scattered throughout and their presence greatly aids in diagnosis (Figure 2).
Nevomelanocytes can be organized into intraepithelial nests of oval cells (type A), sheets of oval to cuboidal cells (type B), and spindlelike cells in the subepithelium (type C) (Figure 1, A through D).
