These dendritic cells of bone-marrow origin bear particular histoenzymatic and immunohistochemical features, some of which are shared with antigen-presenting cells; however, they are clearly distinct from epidermal Langerhans cells (S100+, CD1a+).
Dermal dendrocytes could act as macrophages, antigen-presenting cells or participate in the homeostasis of macromolecules of the dermis.
dendrocytic tumors (dendrocytic proliferations)
- dermal dendrocyte hamartoma
- dermal dendrocytoma
dendritic cell-related histiocytoses
cutaneous dendritic cells
- cutaneous Langerhans cells
