Differential cell counts were made on a lymph node, the structure of which was replaced by the histiocytic variant of the lymphocytic predominance subtype of diffuse Hodgkin's disease. In terms of numbers of cells in various categories, this lymph node bears a closer relationship to the mixed cellularity subtype than to the classical lymphocytic predominance subtype. In this node, unlike the mixed cellularity subtype, the histiocytes are largely differentiated into epithelioid cells; the significance of this cellular adaptation for defence against neoplastic cells is not known.
