Reported the most useful special stain to determine histologic mesothelioma, a special stain that include acid-Schiff diastase, hyaluronic acid, mucicarmine, CEA, and Leu M1.
Histological features of mesothelioma cells is affected to progonosis mesothelioma, and most studies show that patients mesotheliomas with epithelial cells provide a better prognosis compared with histologic sarcomatous or mixed cell mesothelioma.
