J. F. Llena, A. Hirano, H. S. Wisoff

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The prominent finding on electron microscopy of an unusual spongy variant of medulloblastoma was the marked distention of a well-developed smooth endoplasmic reticulum of the tumor cells. To the authors' knowledge, this fine structural feature has not been described previously in this tumor.
