Peritumoural lymphocytic response
From Libre Pathology
(Redirected from CLR)
There are two sets of criteria (Ueno and Graham). The Ueno criteria have a better inter-rater reproducibility than the older Graham criteria and are less complicated.
Ueno criteria (2013)
- Non-MALT lymphoid aggregates (peritumoural) >= 1 mm.
- Muscosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) = mucosal lymphoid aggregates, submucosal lymphoid aggregates adjacent to the musuclaris mucosae.
- Lymph nodes - these have a (fibrous) capsule.
- Irregular shape (not round).
Graham criteria (1990)
- Lymphoid aggregates with germinal centres focally.
- Stellate fibrosis.
- No previous clinical and pathologic evidence of Crohn's disease.
- Should not be confused with intratumoural lymphocytic response.
- The intratumoural lymphocytic response is associated with MSI-H cancers.
- Colorectal carcinoma.
- Crohn's disease.
- Tumour-infiltrating lymphocytes.
- Intraepithelial lymphocytes.
