Cytomorphology of nucleoli in cutaneous melanoma cells. Lack of nucleoli in neoplastic cells ((a), H&E staining, × 400; insert: H&E staining, × 600). Small number of melanoma cells with visible nucleoli ((b), H&E staining, × 400; insert: in higher magnification two cells with macro- and micronucleoli, H&E staining, × 600). High representation of cancer cells with distinct nucleoli ((c), H&E staining, × 600; insert: prominent binucleolization (two nucleoli per one melanoma cell), H&E staining, × 600). High percentage of melanoma cells with prominent nucleoli ((d), H&E staining, × 400; insert: polynucleolization of melanoma cells (three nucleoli per one melanoma cell, H&E staining, × 600)
