Pathology of Signet-Ring Cell Carcinoma of the Gallbladder

Dr Sampurna Roy MD

 

Signet-ring cell carcinoma of the gallbladder contains cells with intracytoplasmic mucin, which displaces the nuclei toward the periphery.

     

1) Low power : Signet-ring cell carcinoma of the gallbladder.

2) Cells with intracytoplasmic mucin. The nuclei is displaced to the periphery.

The characteristic feature of the tumour is spreading  laterally through the lamina propria.

When the tumour is confined to the surface epithelium or invaginations (Rokitansky-Aschoff sinuses), it may be regarded as an in-situ carcinoma.

When stromal invasion occurs, the cells grow in cords,  nests, and sheets and may form incomplete glandular structures within a mucoid stroma.

Infiltrative submucosal growth can be a prominent feature of signet-ring cell tumours and may occasionally resemble linitis plastica of the stomach.
