Six cases are reported (four gliosarcomas and two glioblastomas) in which the epithelial-like areas of glial anaplasia showed focal squamous cell differentiation, characterized by the development of epithelial whorls, keratin pearls and immunopositivity for cytokeratin. The expression of glial fibrillary acidic protein and the development of squamous… CONTINUE READING
