[Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia. Optical and histo-immunological study of 5 cases with an electron microscopy study of one of the cases].

[Article in French]


5 cases of angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia of the skin are reported. This rare condition was initially described in 1969 by Wells and Whimster. The microscopical pattern is characterised by an atypical vascular proliferation associated with an eosinophilic and lymphoplasmocytic granuloma. In our series, immunohistological study demonstrated the polyclonality of the plasmacytoid component. Electron microscopy performed in one case shows endothelial features even in cells forming clusters without well-defined lumen. These results support the endothelial origin of angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia.
