On aminoacid sequencing and mass spectrometry these fibrils of amyloid like substance were found to be composed of polypeptide of approximately 46 mer (7). However, others are of opinion that this substance is derived from filamentous degeneration of keratin filaments that originate from the tumour squamous epithelium (3). A proportion of amyloid negative and non-calciying variants of Pindborg tumour had also been reported. Other types of odontogenic tumour like ameloblastomas, adematoid odontogenic tumours and ameloblastic odontomas may also contain amyloid or amyloid like substances and needs to be differentiated from these tumours (8). Several cellular variants like clear cell, pigmented, Langerhans cell containing.
Langerhans cell–containing cornea grafts placed in low-risk eyes and normal corneas placed in high-risk eyes were rejected with comparable intensity and incidence, but the T cells responsible for rejection were not identical. Normal corneal allografts placed in high-risk eyes activated predominately DH T cells of the indirect type. The explanation for this finding that we favor is that recipient Langerhans cells migrated into the graft and presented graft-derived peptides in the context of recipient class II MHC molecules.
