They originate from serial gene mutations, particularly the APC and KRAS genes, and are known as the classical adenomato-carcinoma sequence.

2, part B) had two components, including mucin pools with fibrosis containing floating segments of low-grade dysplastic intestinal type epithelium and other areas morphologically similar to a colonic villous adenoma. The villi were lined by mucin producing columnar epithelial cells with nuclear crowding, pseudostratification, and hyperchromasia, consistent with intestinal type low grade dysplasia (Fig.
