Light and electron microscopic studies were performed on an epithelial thymoma obtained from a cow. Tumor masses were found in the cervical and dorsal mediastinal portions, in the hilus and parenchyma of the lung, on the surface of the kidney, and in a uterine horn. The masses were encapsulated and divided into distinct lobules or nodules by prominent trabeculae. Examination of the tumor cells by light microscopy showed squamous epithelial characteristics in both the eosinophilic granules and… CONTINUE READING
