Representative histopathological findings of hindgut neuroendocrine tumors. Legend: a A photomicrograph showing a low-power field of a hindgut neuroendocrine tumor (NET), with evidence of invasion of the submucosal layer (hematoxylin and eosin (HE) staining; original magnification, ×20; scale bar represents 1000 μm). b A photomicrograph showing a high-power field of a hindgut NET. The tumor cells have a round-to-oval nucleus, and the nuclear atypia is relatively mild (HE staining; original magnification, ×400; scale bar represents 100 μm). c and d Among the 42 cases in our study, a positive immunoreactivity for synaptophysin was identified in 42 cases and for chromogranin A in 35 cases (immunohistochemistry, synaptophysin and chromogranin A; original magnification, ×100; scale bars represent 200 μm)
