Notice the prominent peripheral palisading of cells at the borders of the tumor cell islands Fig. 113 Basaloid carcinoma of the thymus is characterized by strands and sheets of hyperchromatic round to oval cells displaying prominent peripheral palisading of nuclei. The tumor cells have increased nuclear chromatin and prominent nucleoli, and scattered mitotic figures are commonly seen Fig. 115 Basaloid carcinoma of the thymus can occasionally contain large, myoid cells scattered within the tumor.

This is the most important feature to distinguish these tumors from lymphoblastic lymphomas, since the lymphocytes in the background will mark as CD1a/TdT/ CD99+, a phenotype that is shared with lymphoblastic lymphoma Fig. 59 Lymphocyte-rich thymoma (WHO type B1) can also show a striking microcystic appearance owing to a proliferation of multiple small abortive perivascular spaces. This differs from the starry-sky appearance because of the lack of tingible-body macrophages. Instead, the small empty vacuoles contain a single small lymphocyte Fig.
