Histologically, DA is characterized by the presence of extensive stromal collagenization or desmoplasia containing small nests and strands of odontogenic epithelial tissue [2-6].
It has been observed that elderly healing is associated with modified inflammatory responses, such as cells late infiltration in wound area, chemokine production changes, phagocytes reduction, delayed reepithelialization, and impaired collagenization [141].
Masson-Goldner trichrome was utilized for histological studies, including evaluation of the extent of reepithelialization, maturation, and organization of the epidermis, granulation tissue formation, collagenization, and inflammatory cells and scar formation in the dermis.

Rowbotham observed in 1999 that the central nervous system of PHN patients is widely and critically damaged by chicken pox - varicella-zoster virus, not only leading to the dehydration of dorsal root ganglia, the degeneration of wallerim, but clear cystic change and marked decrease in the number of the ganglion cells, especially the decrease in and the collagenization of the thicker nerve fiber axis with the myelin sheaths.

(1) The lesion is similar to that of sclerosing mediastinitis, retroperitoneal fibrosis and Reidel's thyroiditis all having a common histological pattern composing of mature hypocellular fibrous tissue with variable collagenization and hyalinization admixed with an inflammatory infiltrate of lymphocytes and plasma cells.
