Spanish term or phrase: glándulas plegadas
This is the context: "Cavidad uterina .... con glándulas plegadas sin estroma entre las mismas".... It is part of a pathology study from a hysterectomy. I found a possible translation ("crowded glands") but I am not sure this is the correct term in English.

Any help will be appreciated.
