Entrapped, non-neoplastic adenohypophysiocytes in human pituitary adenomas.

The immunoprofile of 76 human pituitary adenomas was studied with particular reference to the occurrence of entrapped, non-neoplastic pituitary cells. This phenomenon was defined as unevenly distributed, usually peripherally located cells forming less than 1% of the total cell population. The stellate contour of such passively incorporated cells departed… CONTINUE READING
