AgNORs in tumoral pathology. Review of literature and observations on the technic and reaction in normal oral epithelium. Academic Article uri icon


  • Ten normal oral epithelium were studied for AgNOR demonstration. The AgNOR count decreased, size increased from bottom to top. The areas of basal cell hyperplasia showed higher count more scatter and smaller AgNORs. The AgNORs thus appear to be reflective of the replicatory capacity of the tissue.
