PURPOSE Chlamydia psittaci (Cp) has been associated to ocular adnexal lymphomas (OAL) with variable geographic distribution. Herein, we used multiple Chlamydia detection tools to identify Cp elementary bodies-containing cell and to assess Cp prevalence in both nodal and extranodal lymphomas. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN TETR-PCR, immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, electron microscopy, and laser-capture microdissection were done in 35 OALs to define their effect in Chlamydia detection and… CONTINUE READING
