[Pathological anatomy of splenic lymphogranulomatosis (according to the materials of diagnostic laparotomy)].

[Article in Russian]


The study of 48 cases of spleen lymphogranulomatosis showed lymphogranulomatous growths to be localized only in the periphery of lymphoid follicles. In the early stages of the disease (before the appearance of Berezovsky-Sternberg cells) of the spleen the occurrence of Hodgkin cells is specific when the diagnosis is confirmed histologically before the operation by examinations of the lymph node bioptate. Lymphogranulomatous growths in the spleen appear against the background of hyperplasia of lymphoid follicles which is most likely to be of reactive nature. Lymphogranulomatous growths in the spleen may correspond to any of 4 morphological variants of the disease (according to the classification of Lukes et al., 1966) which are its successive stages: lymphohistiocytic variant--mixed cell--lymphoid exhaustion. Similar changes of the cell composition in the granulomatous tissue occur in cases of lymphogranulomatosis with nodular sclerosis.
