Schwannoma : Verocay Bodies

slide 18 of 56

Comments:
Frequently, the Schwann cells in Antoni A areas show nuclear palisading, whorling patterns, and Verocay bodies.

Verocay bodies are formed by a highly ordered arrangement of Schwann cell nuclei in rows separated by fibrillary processes as nicely illustrated here. A few benign glandular elements are also seen in this image. These are not entrapped normal structures but represent true epithelial differentiation within the tumor.
