Figure 3: (a) Photomicrograph showing an intraepidermal (suprabasal) cleft with upward proliferation of papillae lined by basal cells (villi), filled with acantholytic cells (H and E, ×100). (b) Photomicrograph showing an intraepidermal (suprabasal) cleft filled with acantholytic cells, which are rounded and have deeply eosinophilic cytoplasm, which is relatively paler in perinuclear location and denser or condensed in the periphery (black arrow) (H and E, ×400)
