Synopsis

- monocytoid B lymphocytes (MBLs)
- epithelioid cell clusters

- Warthin-Starry (WS) silver stain-positive bacteria, which are the causative agent of CSD, were present in 52.4% of abscess-forming granulomatous lymphadenitis (AGL) cases with monocytoid B lymphocytes (MBLs) and 59.2% of AGL cases without MBLs. (1714225)
