On the Fine Structural Differential Diagnosis of Primary and Metastatic Lymph Node Tumors with Special Reference to the Nucleus

  • I. Valkov
Conference paper


A great deal of research on the use of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) for tumor typing, e.g., for revealing tumor histogenesis, has occurred in the last 20 years and many publications, including general reviews, have appeared (Bern-hard 1969; Ghadially 1975; Reichlin et al. 1981; Krustev et al. 1982; Denk 1987). As a rule, the use of cytoplasmic features for diagnostic purposes has been stressed.
