Terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-positive lymphoid cells in reactive lymph nodes from children with malignant tumors: incidence, distribution pattern, and immunophenotype in 26 patients.

The presence of terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT)-positive lymphoid precursors in benign lymph nodes from children has been characterized insufficiently. By using single- and double-labeling immunohistochemical analysis, we examined the frequency, distribution, morphologic features, and immunophenotype of TdT-positive cells in benign lymph nodes… CONTINUE READING
