Hyaline globules in a yolk sac tumour. H&E stain.

Hyaline globules, also hyaline bodies, are a common non-specific histomorphologic feature that can be useful in formulating a differential diagnosis.

They can be seen in benign and malignant tissue.



  • Eosinophilic (pink) round bodies ~ typically 4-10 micrometers in diameter.


  • Ectopic decidua.[1]
