OBJECTIVE To investigate correlations between myofibroblast density (MFD) and biological behavior of a large series of non-aggressive and aggressive central giant cell granuloma lesions (CGCGs). METHODS Twenty-four non-aggressive and 17 aggressive lesions were immunohistochemically stained with alpha smooth muscle actin. MFD was assessed using the point counting method in the lesions' core tissue and in control areas that consisted of non-involved, connective tissue surrounding the lesion… CONTINUE READING
