Excerpt: ...always lie between the epithelial cells, never within them, and as a consequence the epithelial cells seemed to be pushed aside by the intercalated lymphocytes. Origin.--The origin of these lymphocytal aggregations is very difficult to decide.-I have been unable to satisfy myself that they are formed from any of the pre-existing cells of the FIGUEE 1. Acute stage of Leukoplakia of the Tongue. A. Thickened epithelium. B. Intercalating lymphocytes. C. Zone of dense plasma cell proliferation from which almost all elastic tissue and collagen have been removed. D. Unaffected tissues containing yellow elastic fibres in large quantity. E. Bundles of muscle. This change in the sub-epithelial tissues extended over the entire leukoplakic area. (Senii-niagram matic. Main outlines drawn with camera lucida.
