|Abstract:||The cellular composition of suppurative granulomas was investigated by the application of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies to paraffin sections and compared with nonsuppurative, hypersensitivity-type granulomas. Macrophages, T cells, and dendritic cells showed a similar distribution in both types of granulomas. In addition to the presence of granulocytes, a major difference between suppurative granulomas and hypersensitive-type granulomas concerned their relationship with B lymphocytes. Hypersensitive-type granulomas were surrounded by small mantle B cells, but they did not contain any B lymphocytes. In contrast, variable numbers of B cells were found either at the periphery or in the center of suppurative granulomas. In view of their morphology (medium size, pale cytoplasm, irregular nuclear shape) and phenotype (L26 +/LN1 -/MB2 +/MT2 +) these B lymphocytes closely resembled monocytoid B cells. The monocytoid B cells might have a role in the recruitment of polymorphonuclear granulocytes and in the development of the necrosis, which occur within suppurative granulomas.|
