Lymph Node Histology

(Stain - Haematoxylin Eosin)

  • Reticular cells (and reticular fibres) form a delicate network between the capsule and trabeculae.
  • Only their large and light nuclei are easily visible in the microscope.
  • The cytoplasm of reticular cells is only weakly eosinophilic.
  • Lymphocytes and macrophages are housed in the network of reticular cells and the reticular fibres formed by them.
  • The processes of reticular cells and reticular fibres extend into and criss-cross within the sinuses.
