BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES CD10 is a proteolytic enzyme expressed on the surface of germinal center cells and lymphomas derived from these cells. There is a well-known association between CD10 expression and lymphomas of follicular center cell origin. However, the reported frequency of CD10 positivity in follicular lymphomas is widely variable, and no studies have addressed the importance of assessing the intensity of CD10 expression in the diagnosis of these tumors. In this study, we utilized… CONTINUE READING
