The characteristic histopathological findings include irregular para cortical areas of coagulative necrosis and karyorrhectic debri with large number of histiocytes at the margin of necrotic areas10.
Multifocal areas of coagulative necrosis were also associated with the loss of the normal structure of hepatic cords, with severe congestion of central and hepatic veins.
(24) Some tumors reveal features of dedifferentiation, such as prominent nucleoli, sarcomatoid change, or coagulative necrosis.
Since PSU backbone possesses the polar -SO2- groups and rigid aromatic rings, it had caused the structure to be very rigid; chain motion is restricted to bond vibrations and coagulative. Due to higher viscosity, such type of structure is formed in PSU membrane which is reported in the previous works which is also consistent with the literature [29].
Soft tissue leiomyomas are smooth muscle-derived benign tumours with minimal atypia and few mitoses but with no coagulative necrosis.
