Out of a total of 97 granulomatous lymph nodes, AFB were microscopically positive in 54 (56%) nodal tissue
biopsy sections and forty three (44%) cases were negative.
Using polymerase chain reaction technology they discuss a quick and apparently reliable method of real-time assay to detect sentinel axillary lymph node metastases intraoperatively by assessing the homogenate of the nodal tissue
This characteristic, also seen in rats may improve nodal tissue
irrigation without increasing artery caliber (Meloda-Silva & Mandarim-de-Lacerda, 1990).
Of 32 women with evaluable nodal tissue
, 30 (94%) had at least one sentinel node; 17 (53%) had bilateral sentinel nodes.
10,11) The prognosis for patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma depends not only on the extent of the primary lesion and the status of the involved nodal tissue
, but on the intrinsic radiosensitivity of the tumor tissue, as well.
In such cases, the megakaryocytes are present in nodal sinusoids, and they tend to stand out from the adjacent nodal tissue
because of their multilobated and hyperchromatic nuclei.
