Never noticed the practice test on the ABP website, of course its lame virtual microscopy and I cant seem to move around easy enough to diagnosis crap.

Is the first case metastatic lobular carcinoma (ans: metastatic mammary carcinoma)?

Last case (#3) myelolipoma?

Cant see crap on no2 though.

Personally, I don't think I'd be able to recognize the most blatant Melanoma using that worthless "Virtual Microscopy" thingy on their website. Don't know if they honestly think it's helpful...

What's with the frenzy of online quizzes? Boards coming up or something?

The Cartmanesque atmosphere which you contribute to with much glee? :D You can't take it all back with a few choice pink-and-purples you know :p

Consider a little work on the "li-" part of things. I think a Photoshop ruff is in order.

Agree with metastatic breast carcinoma for the first one, but think the last case is an angiomyolipoma. Look at the pics on pg. 608 of Enzingers 4th ed. Agree with #2!

Angiomyolipomas are fairly cellular arent they? In the PEComas family of tumors like a solitary fibrous tumor. To me at low power #3 looks like fat with extramedullary hematopoeisis aka myelolipoma, which are actually adrenal in origin.

You maybe right as my comp is freezing everytime I go past 5x

On initial glance, I'm with LA on this one...I favor myelolipoma. I'm not seeing the smooth muscle component for an angiomyolipoma.
I may be wrong, but what I am interpreting as smooth muscle are the vaculoated cells around the vessels. Not very conspicuous in this lesion, I agree.

Also, I see quite a bit of hemorrage, but could not find any EMH on high power...
