Image Annotation: Malignant basaloid follicular neoplasm arising as a nodular tumor on the back of a K5-GLI1 transgenic mouse. This tumor bears some resemblance to the ohter tumors, with cords of basaloid cells separated by dense eosinophilic material, but the majority of this tumor is more poorly differentiated. The jigsaw puzzle-like architecture is less well developed and the central portion of the tumor is necrotic and cystic. Marcus Bosenberg
