3. lymphatic obstruction that leads to genital elephantiasis and rectal strictures
How do endometrial stromal sarcomas present microscopically?
They show a vascular supporting framework with neoplastic cells concentrically arranged around a blood vessel
How does the core of an endometrial polyp appear microscopically?
endometrial gland (often cystic and dilated)
endometrial stroma (fibrous)
blood vessels (thick-walled, dilated, coiled)
