Lung adenocarcinomas metastatic to the brain with and without ultrastructural evidence of rootlets: an electron microscopic and immunohistochemical study using cytokeratins 7 and 20 and villin.

Abstract

Adenocarcinomas metastatic to brain from lung or colon may pose differentiation difficulties. Ultrastructurally, both may have brush borders with rootlets. This study examines the ultrastructural morphology and immunohistochemical expression of villin (associated with rootlets), cytokeratin 7 (present in lung adenocarcinomas), and cytokeratin 20 (present in… (More)
