In this context, it cannot be overemphasized that antigens released by necrotic cells are often retained at the site of necrosis and it can be helpful to stain for such antigens particularly as the presence of a specific antigen may be indicative of the diagnosis. For example, the separation of carcinoma from lymphoma may be resolved if the necrotic lymph node tissue contains cytokeratins. Similarly, it is sometimes possible to subtype the lymphocyte population by the predominant lymphocyte antigen present at the necrotic site.

Many epithelial cells and carcinomas express CD15. CD30 CD30 is a membrane-bound glycoprotein encoded by TNFRSF8 on chromosome 1p36. A member of the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily, CD30 is expressed by activated B and T lymphocytes. In reactive nodes, scattered parafollicular immunoblasts express the antigen; such cells may be quite numerous in the setting of viral infection, as with EBV. Expression is seen in a variable proportion of large B and T cell lymphomas. Strong positivity is seen in anaplastic large cell lymphoma, and the majority of RS cells in classical Hodgkin lymphoma expresses CD30.
