Chordoma (photomicrograph)

This high-power view of classic or typical chordoma demonstrates physaliphorous (bubble-bearing) cells. Note the large size, vacuolization, and eccentric nuclei. Several cells have hyperchromatic nuclei and prominent nucleoli. Mitoses, spindle cells, and regions of necrosis are absent. (Contributed by Dr. Herbert Newton.)
