AIMS Warthin's tumour is composed of bilayered oncocytic epithelium and organised lymphoid stroma, which resembles mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT); however, the histogenesis of the lymphoid stroma is not fully understood. We hypothesised that lymphocytes consisting of the stroma are recruited via high endothelial venules (HEVs) by the mechanism operating in normal lymphocyte homing in secondary lymphoid organs. The aim of this study was to determine immunohistochemically the molecules… CONTINUE READING
