BACKGROUND Immune escape is one prerequisite for the formation of neoplasms that is reflected by the pattern of immune cell infiltration. Abundant monocytic infiltration without apparent phagocytic activity is well known in human gliomas, while other types of human intracranial tumours have not yet been investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analysed LCA-positive lymphocytes and CD68-positive macrophages/microglia by immunohistochemistry in 67 intracranial neoplasms: 18 glioblastomas (GBM… CONTINUE READING
