Figure 3 Small bowel adenocarcinoma in resected neoterminal ileum. A: Cross section of the ileum near the anastomosis, showing complete effacement of the mucosa and infiltration of the underlying ileal wall by the adenocarcinoma (0.5 × objective magnification); B: Representative high-magnification view of the poorly-differentiated adenocarcinoma, comprised of sheets of single malignant cells and cell clusters with signet ring morphology (40 × objective magnification); C: Representative high-magnification view of a well-differentiated region of the adenocarcinoma, characterized by well-defined tubules with small, rigid lumina, mimicking intestinal crypts, as well as tumor cells arranged in well-polarized clusters without distinct lumina (40 × objective magnification).Tumor was noted in 6/35 lymph nodes and showed serosal involvement and lymphovascular and perineural invasion. Immunohistochemistry revealed intact expression of DNA mismatch proteins MLH1, MSH2, MSH6 and PMS2.
