  1. M: male; F; female; HV: hyaline-vascular type; PC: plasma cell type; EBV PCR: results of polymerase chain reaction, + stands for positive; EBV ISH: localization of Epstein-Barr virus detected by in-situ hybridization, GC means signals within germinal centers, IF represents signals detected in inter-follicular space; H and L indicate highly vascular and less vascular CD.
