Figure 3: (a) Histopathological examination showing neoplastic plasma cells presented sparse, darkly staining cytoplasm and pleomorphic, basophilic, and vesicular nuclei. Note the mitotic figures (*) and cells with eccentrically placed nucleus (arrows) (H and E, ×200). (b) Nuclear positivity for MUM-1 in more than 80% of neoplastic cells (LSAB, ×100). (c) Neoplastic cells presented membranous expression of CD138 (LSAB, ×100). (d) Proliferation rate, assessed by Ki67/MIB-1 nuclear labeling, was 80% (LSAB, ×100)
