Heart Allograft Biopsy Interpretation

Figure 6. Quilty-type lesions can also be seen deeper in the myocardium, in perivascular spaces and in the pericardium. In this example, a relatively well circumscribed infiltrate consisting of small lymphocytes is apparently situated in the myocardium. Deeper cuts of such lesions will often, but not always, show a connection with the endocardium.

Please mail comments, corrections or suggestions to the TPIS administration at the UPMC.
