Figure 2: (a) Extensive hyperkeratosis (HK), irregular dermal papillae lined by single layer of basal cells (P) projecting into the suprabasalacantholyticunilocular cleft (C) within the central epidermis with no acantholytic cells. Arrows indicate dyskeratotic cells in the stratum granulosum (stain H and E, ×40). (b) Dyskeratotic cells, corps ronds with small pyknotic nuclei, a perinuclear clear halo and eosinophilic cytoplasm (arrows) and grains, compressed cells with elongated nuclei (arrow heads) are visualized in stratum ganuosum. Extensive hyperkeratosis (HK) and suprabasalacantholytic cleft (C) are also seen (stain H and E, ×100)
