Figure 1313

Photomicrograph of diffuse lymphatic tissue. This photomicrograph shows the diffuse lymphatic tissue in the lamina propria (LP) of the large intestine. The lower portion of two intestinal glands (CI) is also evident. The highly cellular, diffuse lymphatic tissue includes fibroblasts, plasma cells, and eosinophils. However, the most abundant cell component, whose presence characterizes diffuse lymphatic tissue, is the lymphocyte, which can be identified by its small, round, dark-staining nucleus. X320.
