Is there a difference in lymphoid nodules Reactive vs predominate?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Blood Cancers & Disorders Support Group.

Hi @dazlin
Google returns few clear, plain language answers regarding the definitions of "reactive and predominant lymphoid nodules". As I posted in the CAR-T group, here's an extensive article from Science Direct on
– Lymph nodes https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/neuroscience/lymph-node

Additionally I found the following:
"Nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin lymphoma (NLPHL) is a type of lymphoma that develops from abnormal B lymphocytes (B cells, which are a type of white blood cell). NLPHL is not very common – around 1 in 20 cases (5%) of Hodgkin lymphoma are NLPHL."
In this case predominant means that lymphocytes are the predominant cell type.

Can you share more about why you are researching these terms? What context did you read about them? In a lab report?
