Nothing by itself: If this is included in a description of a tumor, then the full diagnosis of the tumor needs to be included. If this is a description of a non-neoplastic mucosa, it requires a non-tumor diagnosis. This is only a part of a pathology report, meaningless without the larger picture.

What is a "rare" lymphoid aggregate? And what is its relation when found in a myxoid stroma in the endometrium?
