Fine structure of an unusual spongy variant of medulloblastoma

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

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.
