Comments:
Antoni B areas are hypocellular and less compact than Antoni A areas. They consist of haphazardly arranged spindle cells in a loose myxoid stroma (as seen here) or hyalinized stroma containing a few inflammatory cells and delicate collagen fibers. Antoni B areas also contain variably-sized, ectatic deformed vessels which frequently have hyalinized walls and contain thrombi.
