Dermal intravascular lymphoma. Light micrograph of a transverse section through a venule (a small vein) showing many large atypical lymphocytes with nuclei stained dark purple. This is a case of intravascular lymphoma (IVL) which often results in dermal (skin) lesions. IVL is a rare subtype of extranodal diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Lymphoma refers to a group of blood cell tumours that develop from lymphatic cells. The lymphatic system circulates interstitial fluid around the body and into the veins. This tissue section has been treated with a hematoxylin-eosin-saffron (HES) stain. Magnification: x560 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
