Figure 2: (a) Scanner view showing an atrophic epidermis with small nests arising from the epidermis focally, along with thin cords of basaloid cells dispersed throughout the dermis (hematoxylin-eosin, x40). (b) Higher magnification showing strands of basaloid cells permeating through the collagen fibers. At some places, retraction spaces between the tumor cords and stroma are seen. The tumor cells show peripheral palisading, hyperchromatic nuclei and scanty cytoplasm (hematoxylin-eosin, ×100). (c) Strands of medium-sized basaloid cells infiltrating as islands and cords. Few entrapped skeletal muscle fibers (black arrow) and nerve twigs (red arrow) are seen in the deep dermis (hematoxylin-eosin, x400)
