tumoral cell types

Semiology

- small cells : small cell tumors / small cell carcinomas
- tumoral round cells : round cell tumors

- tumoral fusiform cells : furisform cell tumors / spindle cell tumors
- tumoral rhabdoid cells : rhabdoid cell tumors / rhabdoid tumors
- tumoral signet-ring cells : signet ring cell tumors
- tumoral oncocytic cells / oncocytes / Hürtle cell : oncocytic tumors

- tumoral spumous cells (lipid-laden tumoral cells )
- tumoral plasmacytoid cells : plasmocytoid cell tumors
- tumoral giant cells : giant cell tumors
- tumoral cuboidal cells
- tumoral columnar cells

- tumoral large cells (large cell tumors )

  • large round cells with clear cytoplasm

- tumoral cells with eccentric nuclei with pale cytoplasm

  • large cells with eccentric nuclei with pale cytoplasm
    • lipocytic cells
  • large cells with vacuolated cytoplasm
    • sebaceous cells
    • hibernomatous cells

- tumoral polygonal cells
- tumoral cells with abundant cytoplasm

  • large cells with vacuolated cytoplasm
    • sebaceous cells
    • hibernomatous cells
  • large cells with eosinophilic cytoplasm (granular cytoplasm )
    • oncocytic cells (oxyphil cells ) : oncocytic tumors
    • apocrine cells

- tumoral small round cells (small round cell tumors )
- tumoral large round cells (large round cell tumors )
- small cells with eosinophilic cytoplasm and eccentric nuclei (small myoid or plasmacytoid cells )
