Dendritic cells (DCs) are the most powerful professional antigen-presenting cells, and responsible for antigen recognition and procession.[8] They could initiate primary immune response and play an important role in host defense against pathogen infection and tumor progression.

Follicular dendritic cells (FDC), also known as dendritic reticulum cells are the cells of immune system which function in antigen presentation and germinal center regulation.1,2 Follicular dendritic cell sarcoma (FDCS), first reported by Monda et al in 1986, is an uncommon intermediate grade sarcoma derived from FDC.4,5
Monocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells express different proteins on their cell surface.
Dendritic cells (DCs), acting as professional antigen-presenting cells, play a key role in the tumor-associated immunological reactions.
