foreign body granuloma

Foreign-body giant cell

A foreign-body giant cell is a collection of fused macrophages (giant cell) which are generated in response to the presence of a large foreign body.

The nuclei are arranged in a disorganized manner. This is in contrast to a Langhans giant cell, where the nuclei are arranged on the border.
