Heart Allograft Biopsy Interpretation

Rejection
Figure 9. A higher magnification of figure 8, illustrates the differences between the endocardial inflammation of acute rejection and Quilty lesions. Note the composition of the infiltrate in this case, which contains a significant number of eosinophils and blastic lymphocytes. Quilty lesions on the other hand, are usually composed on small lymphocytes and there are small blood vessel with prominent endothelium amidst the inflammation of a Quilty lesion.
