Each sample was prepared as 3 serial sections spaced 2001397645907μm apart.1397645907Lymphocytic and plasma cell focus score (LFS, PFS) were determined for each section, and the diagnostic results were compared to those obtained from a single section. Results: For 22 of the 69 patients, all 3 sections1397645907were scored at1397645907
