Cardiac myxoma is the most common primary tumor of the heart. A detailed evaluation of cell types in 41 cardiac myxomas by light microscopy and in 30 cases by immunohistochemistry was made. Reactivity to the various antisera were observed in the surface lining cells, the stromal myxoma cells and the cells in the perivascular location. Factor VIII-related antigen (FVIIIR-Ag) and Ulex europaeus agglutinin (UEA-1), both endothelial markers, were positive in 23 cases each. UEA-1 was found to be a… CONTINUE READING
