Twenty-one papillary syringadenomas were studied using immunohistochemical methods to characterise the immunoglobulin classes associated with the plasma cell infiltrates characteristically seen in these neoplasms. It was found that the majority of the plasma cells produce IgG (65.2%). Plasma cells associated with IgA and IgM production constituted 30.4% and 4.4% respectively of the enumerated cells. These findings confirm the long-presumed inflammatory nature of these infiltrates.
