Mediastinum
Haematoxylin & Eosin (H&E)
66 years
male
partially cystic and partially solid Tumor in the mediastinum (diameter 17cm)
Remnant thymic tissue with fibrosis and extensive infiltrations of an invasive partially cystic neoplasm. The tumor cells are eosinophilic and show both a squamous differentiation and goblet cells. This resembles the histomorphological image of mucoepidermoid carcinomas of salivary glands.
