Histologic examination reveals representative sections of a multisected soft tissue specimen consisting of a benign epithelial neoplasm. The neoplasm consists of numerous islands of epithelial cells showing nuclear palisading at the periphery. Toward the center of the islands, the epithelial cells become loose and angular resembling the stellate reticulum seen in the enamel organ. The cell morphology is bland and mitoses are rarely seen. Cystic degeneration and focal areas of acanthomatous change are also noted.
