vascular wall is present in most cases • Larger lesions commonly demonstrate central necrosis • Small lymphocytes predominate and are admixed with plasma cells, immunoblasts, and histiocytes • Neutrophils and eosinophils are usually inconspicuous • Within the inflammatory infiltrate is a variable number of large EBV+ B cells • The EBV-positive cells may resemble immunoblasts or, less commonly, resemble Hodgkin cells and may be multinucleated Immunopathology/special stains • The
Histology • Thickened alveolar septa and increased number of alveolar capillaries • Abnormally located capillaries within central portion of septa instead of near alveolar lumen • Pulmonary arteries with medial hypertrophy • Abnormally muscularized arterioles within bronchovascular bundles • Dilated pulmonary veins abnormally located near pulmonary arteries in the bronchovascular bundles; although this feature can be focal or diffuse, it is pathognomic of alveolar capillary dysplasia
degeneration • Trichrome stain shows focal necrosis of muscle in media Fig 2 Aortic dissection. Close-up view showing extension of dissection into the abdominal aorta. Fig 3 Aortic dissection.
