Keratotic type

Keratotic type

The keratotic variant is similar to the solid type, with nests and islands of basaloid cells with peripheral palisading.

It differs in the presence of squamous differentiation and keratinization in the centers of the islands.

There is usually very little stroma, and no lobular arrangement or follicular differentiation.
