Pathology Poster - Chondroid Stroma
Dr Sampurna Roy MD
Chondroid Stroma is supporting tissue of a proliferation that bears a resemblance close to that of cartilage, it usually signifying differentiation toward cartilage.
Chondroid is homogeneous material that in sections stained by hematoxylin and eosin is basophilic in some foci, eosinophilic in others, and amphophilic in still others.
The appearance distinctive of chondroid is attributed to the presence of large amounts of chrondoid sulfate. “Chondroid syringoma,” is an example of a tumour in which abnormal eccrine glandular structures reside in stroma that resembles cartilage.
