Comments:
Microscopically, traditional serrated adenomas (TSA) have a villiform architecture and may be mistaken for tubulovillous or villous adenomas. The crypts are lined by tall columnar cells with abundant mucin-depleted eosinophilic cytoplasm. The nuclei are hyperchromatic and elongated with minimal cytologic atypia. Mitotic activity is low. One of the characteristic features is the presence of ectopic crypts.
