Nodular Lymphoid Infiltrates

Chapter

Abstract

Cellular proliferations that result in a pattern of nodules or spheres are very distinctive. This is the most frequent benign and neoplastic growth pattern encountered in lymph nodes. The rounded nodules or spheres are the result of localized aggregates of cells that are different to the mixed background of lymphoid cells that normally make up the lymph node.
