The aim of our study was to establish by means of morphologic methods whether or not the germinal centers of lymph nodes and spleen react positively when the animal bears a small, subcutaneously implanted dermal graft. Our attention was pointed especially to the local germinal center activity as compared to the lymphoid cell infiltration surrounding the transplant.
