Description Stain: Azan. A tonsillar crypt lined by squamous epithelium (2) that is infiltrated with lymphocytes (1). It is a normal finding that within the crypts free cells, plugs of lymphocytes (1) and calcified epithelial debris as well as colonies of oral commensally bacteria are present. (3) shows a calcified bacterial plaque. Tonsilloliths or tonsil stones are calcifications that form in the crypts of the palatal tonsils. These calculi are composed of calcium salts in combination with other mineral salt.
