  • Carcinomas with lymphoid stroma represent a distinct morphological subtype of gastrointestinal cancer. They occur most often in the stomach or in the colon. On the morphological level, they may be separated into medullary and lymphoepithelioma-like cancers. The former are characterized by predominantly syncytial growth and dense lymphocytic infiltration that prevails at the tumour periphery. Lymphoepithelioma-like cancers are made up of small clusters and aggregates of tumour that are broken up… CONTINUE READING
