Although meningiomas exhibit great variation in nuclear morphology, the nuclei of HPCs are more plump and hyperchromatic, and lack the nuclear pseudoinclusions that typify meningothelial cells.12 In addition; mesenchymal chondrosarcoma should be differentiated in diagnosis of HPC.
Though the histologic differential diagnosis of small cell osteosarcoma includes several round cell tumors, it can be most easily mistaken for either Ewing's sarcoma or mesenchymal chondrosarcoma. Ewing's sarcoma can be considered when the biopsy specimen does not include any osteoid and mesenchymal chondrosarcoma when there is presence of cartilage.
