Lymphocytes, monocytes and plasmocytes composed the interstitial infiltrate.
Bone marrow infiltration was defined as an abnormal percentage of plasmocytes on bone marrow biopsy (>3.5% plasmocytes).

In some areas of the cut, multifocal and coalescing necrosis was found, mononuclear inflammatory cells predominantly infiltrated with lymphocytes, plasmocytes and discrete reactive macrophages.
Histologic analysis of the skin biopsy specimen showed perivascular lymphocytic infiltrates with admixture of plasmocytes, consistent with EM (Figure 2).
Histopathological examination of the incisional biopsy specimen showed normal epidermis with superficial focal parakeratosis, and noncaseating tuberculoid granulomas consisting of epithelioid histiocytes, plasmocytes, and Langhans giant cells in the papillary dermis (Figure 2A and Figure 2B).
PDC-E2 is endocytosed by APC and this endocytosis leads to APC maturation and IL-12 secretion which provides the cytokine milieu which is essential for the maintenance of the continuum of proinflammatory T-helper type 1 (Th1) induction arising from naive CD4+ T through antigen presentation; such antigenspecific CD4 T cells help plasmocytes to produce high-titre AMA targeting PDC-E2.
La proliferation cellulaire etait melee a un infiltrat inflammatoire abondant plus accentue en peripherie et riche en lymphocytes, plasmocytes et polynucleaires eosinophiles.
It is also observed infiltrated macrophages with myelinic residues phagocytized, lymphocytes and plasmocytes. In some regions, the blood irrigation is damaged blocking the circulating monocytes arrival, therefore the necrotic tissue is not phagocytized or eliminated, remaining in the region and, possibly, suffering calcification.
