Immunohistochemical identification of lysozyme in pseudopyloric gland metaplasia in Crohn's disease.

Abstract

Using an immunoperoxidase technique lysozyme (LZM) was identified in the ileum of patients with Crohn's disease in inflammatory cells of the lamina propria, in Paneth cells and in pseudopyloric gland metaplasia.
