The punch biopsy includes skin n subcutaneous tissue. Sections of the skin show within the epidermis there are scattered large pale vacuuolate tumour cells occurring mainly singly with a few small clusters noted. The tumour cells have atypical nuclei with occasional prominent nucleoli noted. Mucin stain (PAS+D) shows strong cytoplasmic positively in the tumour cells.

Immunohistochemical staining of the tumour cells in the epidermis show strong positive for CK7. The tumour cells are negative for CK20,S-100 and HMB45. The histological and immunohistochemical features are those of Paget disease of vulva.
