Reactive Changes of the Mesothelium
- 65 Downloads
Reactive cellular changes of mesothelial cells are still a very embarrassing problem, not only for newcomers to cytology but also for more experienced cytologists. The borderline between reactive changes and the highly differentiated mesothelioma is the best-known example of these difficulties. All new techniques (electron microscopy, tissue culture, morphometry, cytochemistry, and monoclonal antibodies) have been used to try to solve this problem. However, it is still only partly solved.
