Gross and histopathological morphology of the uterine cervical lesion. a Cut surface of the resected uterus: Whitish masses in the uterine corpus are typical leiomyomas on gross and microscopic examination. At the uterine cervix, a gray-white lesion is observed (arrowhead). b High-power view of the lesion: Tumor cells have an epithelioid appearance but are less cohesive. Intercellular bridges are absent. Uniformly rounded nuclei have coarse chromatin and obvious nucleoli. Original magnification: ×400. c Low-power view of the lesion: Tumor cells are arranged in a nest-like structure compartmentalized by a vascular network. Original magnification: ×100
