Everyones choice A is different.
they mean- Diffuse neutrophil infiltration
what does stellate necrotizng granuloma means ?
always with the details! losing dumb points :(
@sympathetikey Doesn't the biopsy finding vary with the biopsy location:
Lymph nodes have stellate granulomas
Bacillary Angiomatosis (skin lesion) has neutrophilic inflammation.
What do you think?
@sympathetikey Pathoma chapter 2 says cat scratch disease forms non-caseating granulomas
@ chextra Same with FA 2019 pg. 218
Immunocompetent: regional LN in axilla in one arm (like our pt here)
Immunocompromised: bacillary angiomatsis is transmitted by cat scratches
FA 177 says Kaposi has lymphocytic inflammation whereas Bartonella spp has neutrophilic inflammation. I guess this does not apply when immunocompromised? But doesn't Bartonella usually affect the immunocompromised ppl?
Got it after seeing that she's immunocompetent
