The histopathology of papillary tumours of the pineal region (PTPR) closely resembles that of ependymomas and choroid plexus tumours. Therefore, immunohistochemical staining profiles were investigated in a series of 15 PTPR. In addition to cytokeratin, synaptophysin and glial fibrillary acidic protein expression, PTPR were examined for the presence of dot- or ring-like epithelial membrane antigen (EMA) immunoreactivity typically encountered in ependymoma, staining for inwardly rectifying… CONTINUE READING
